Jake is a approximately 2 year old smooth coat Saluki that was adopted from Qatar. He was found as a stray, he had a broken hip and knee which has since healed.
Jake walks great on a leash and responds well to voice commands when he gets distracted (squirrels) on walks. He crates very well and enjoys his time in his crate while we are away. He like other Saluki’s but has a high prey drive so he will need at least an 8ft. fence to ensure his safety. Jake is an absolute gentleman with his house manners and is a very quick learner!
When we first started fostering Jake he came into our home that has several dogs with a bit of an alpha attitude. Each dog in our established pack has their place and the all put Jake in his place within just a few days. We have a young female Saluki (app. 2 yrs old) and she and Jake love to play until they pass out. As his fosters, we feel that Jake would do best in a home that has other dogs (sighthounds may be best) that have strong personalities. We have fallen head over heels for this sweet, adorable guy that just needed a pack that would show him how to behave socially. If we could add another pack member we would keep him.
Saluki experience would be best with Jake.
