If you want to look at some Azawakh photos to get a good picture of the breed, we’ve compiled some here.
The Azawakh is an unusual dog that many may not have heard of. It’s a west African hound, and originated there. In terms of size and stature, it resembles a greyhound with its fairly large size and long, lean body that people often don’t realize is supposed to be very thin. They have short coats and can come in a huge variety of colors, though the most common associated with the breed is brown or red.
They excel as guardian dogs. If you want a watchdog who will let you know whenever anyone is approaching the house, you’re looking at the right breed. They also make great companion dogs, and will be very loyal to their owner.
The main thing to be aware of with this dog is the fact that they’re tough hunters. Since humans bred them to chase prey, they may not be great for cats or small animals. If you do want to introduce them to small animals, you should be very careful about it. Never leave them unsupervised even if it seems as if the animals get along.
You should also be careful with their recall outdoors, as it may not be reliable if they lock onto something. You should consider off-leash activities very carefully, and do some long leash training.
