My first Salukis came from Mandy Manley-Smith (Farousi) in the mid 2000s. They included Mab (Ch Al Muzdaher Farousi Rabha ET (Imp Bahrain)), the dam of my first two litters. Mandy gave me my start in the breed, and has supported me the whole way.
In 2012 Daniela and Henk van der Lichte (Hadi el Basher) kindly sent Leo (Dual Ch [LC] Lenoapayaz Hadi el Basher ET LCM (Imp Belgium)) and Lilith (Ch Lilithperi Hadi el Basher ET (Imp Belgium)) all the way to Australia. Both Leo and Lilith have also since contributed to the gene pool here in Australia.
Additionally, I acknowledge with grateful thanks the support of
- Kathy and Jeff Lipps at Windrush who allowed me to use “Vulcan” over Mab.
- Norm Strathdee and Hilary Spence at Padtheway who allowed me to use “Bond” over Lilith.
