We love and exhibit the Sloughi, the rare breed of sighthound from northern Africa: Morocco, Tunisia, Libya and Algeria, and we have imported more Sloughis from Morocco than anyone else in the U.S.
The top-winning Sloughis in the U.S. for 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017, the first AKC Champion, the first AKC Grand Champion, the first AKC Hound Group placing Sloughi, Best in Miscellaneous Class (BIMC) and Certificate of Merit Sloughis, and the first UKC Grand Champion Sloughis and the first Westminster Best of Breed Sloughi are all owned or bred by Ocerico Sloughis. In addition, we have owned and/or bred more Best in Show winning Sloughis than anyone else in the history of the breed in the US, including the top Best in Show winning Sloughi in the United States. We are also the only AKC Breeder of Merit Sloughi breeder.
Our Sloughis are not just show dogs, but family members who live in our home. For this reason, we breed only rarely, and our Sloughi puppies are lovingly raised under foot.
We have been involved with Sloughis since 1995 and have been active in sighthounds since 1987, including Sloughis, Afghan hounds, and Rhodesian ridgebacks. We are active in the American Sloughi Association, the AKC National Parent Club for the breed in the United States and with the United Sloughi Association, the UKC Sloughi Club for the breed in the United States. I am also a Judges Education Coordinator, breed mentor, and presenter, approved by the American Sloughi Association.
