Saphir x Fellouja
Born July 8, 2009
We extend our gratitude to Mohammed Soujaa, Dune’s breeder for sending this precious boy straight from the Moroccan desert to us. Dune hails from a long line of Sloughis used in the traditional hunting of jackals, foxes, gazelles and hares in the Sahara. He has beautiful type, exceptional gaits, a gorgeous head, and a wonderful, loving disposition. Dune is the only Sloughi in US history to have won the National Specialty three times. Dune is an extremely special, once in a lifetime dog, and he is my best friend.
