Mab has played a central role at Alshira as the mother of my first two litters. She and her children have taught me much and carried me a long way in my journey in Salukis. I would have not have Mab without the support and generosity of Mandy Manley-Smith at Farousi. At 12 years old, Mab now runs the household and keeps the younger Salukis in line.


From my first litter, Nixie easily achieved her show title. Despite a promising start, after two difficult on field incidents Nixie decided she prefers running around the paddocks at home to running on a lure coursing field. Now 7 years old, Nixie has now claimed a favourite spot on a dog bed with a view out over the Yass Valley.
