This sleek breed exudes speed. Salukis' smooth, silky coats have slight feathering on the legs and backs of the thighs. Their silky, hair-covered long ears hang close to the head. And dark hazel eyes suggest the breed is always ready for adventure.

Whether feathered or smooth, the Saluki coat is easy to groom. A weekly brushing should keep it looking healthy and shiny. Feathering along the ears or tail might require more frequent care to prevent matting and remove dirt. A device called a "snood" may also help keep ear feathering away from food bowls. Trimming nails, cleaning ears, and brushing teeth should also be part of every dog's grooming routine, regardless of breed.
