I love hunting dogs. Currently, I have three Saluki, two males and one female. They love to hunt. I use them as varmint killers on my own property. They catch cottontail rabbits, groundhogs and occasionally skunks. Of course, catching hares on the prairie would be a more apprpriate hunting for a Saluki, but my dogs live a happy life here, in Virginia.
I don't own one, but I absolutely love them!!! As a matter of fact, our local college's mascot is a saluki, and whenever we make it into the college bracket in basketball or football there is usually a huge write up about "What is a Saluki?"
