I'm also a fan of salukis however I can't help but dislike how needy, unfriendly and sensitive they are
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...
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.
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!
And, well, first thing that greyhound did was putting the head under my hand, and then the back <lol>
Both breeds I great though! I don't like whippets that much. They were supposed to be little version of greyhound, but big ones are better
Ah yes, that sounds about right! They love attention, mine leans; She'll rest her body up against your legs, but at a sharp angle, so that when you move away she falls over!
Same here, I know plenty of people who have them, but I think they're a bit, well, boring. Not nearly as talented as the original version <3
