The Saluki, commonly known as the Royal dog of Egypt, It is perhaps the oldest caste called domesticated dog and the oldest of the greyhounds, It is believed descended from wolves in the wilderness of Ara. The Bedouin are highly valued and use them for hunting gazelles and as pets.

As in the case of some other breeds in United States, including the Basenji and the Portuguese Podengo, the current population of Saluki descends from a small number of the first dogs in being introduced to the country since the 19th century.
