A wonderful drawing of a beautiful breed! :love:
I'm also a fan of salukis however I can't help but dislike how needy, unfriendly and sensitive they are

Thank you :)
Needy? If you mean, they need a lot of attention and effort - only for running, as I heard they're wonderful at home. Unfriendly? Never :) They have to trust you, to get crazy when they see you, but I have never seen an unfriendly one (one afraid of people, but she was afraid of everything...). Sensitive? Yeah, they're sighthounds, but salukis are strong as hell... :)

Ah, maybe it's just the one's I've encountered? My mum's friend runs with her saluki (named Slinky), and he's incredibly wary, and shies away from strangers and will even show mild aggression if they get too close. I have an ex racing greyhound, and it's bizarre how different they are for dogs who look so similar (:

I met dozens salukis so far. If they are raised properly, they are just like Amir (this sweet buddy: [link]) - happy, playful and friendly, putting their noses everywhere :) I met him only three times, but every single time he greeted me like we've been friends forever. He's a friendly pup that will become a great dog in future. Even his sister, Allure (this one: [link]), that is a little shy girl, is never aggressive. She just doesn't like being pet by strangers.
I met a greyhound on last dog show I went to. But it was the only grey I have ever met, so I can't tell you how I see the difference between these two breeds.

Aww well that sounds sweet :aww:
I'd say the main differences in temperament are their willingness to be stroked by strangers, the way they act with other dogs and the way they see you. Both breeds are very 'cat-like', though greyhounds are much more human friendly, and all round social doggies :) And I suppose in physical abilities they're pretty similar, except the fact that the saluki could run for several hours longer than a grey!
