Litter for 2014!
An exciting breeding is being planned for 2014 combining the old American lines behind Shahanshah and the superb athleticism and Sinai bedouinTarabin foundation of the Midbar Salukis (Gail Goodman).
The sire's maternal side is pure American-born Saudi Arabian. Truly a litter worth waiting for.
Dam: SHAHANSHAH CIMMARRON MIRA RANIA (major pointed), Ch. Farar's Kalil x Cimmarron Tamazur Tara
Sire: EZEKIEL, CC, CM, BIF at the 2013 GRAND COURSE! Zeke is sired by Midbar Or M'Bustan Ha Galil x El Baz Leila (American born of pure Saudi descent)
Ezekiel, CC, CM, is bred and owned by Charlotte Wrather
More details and pedigree on this breeding-- a litter for the real saluki connoisseur--soon. Proven hunting ability, plus the grace, type, and color of our Canem-Dei foundation, is expected in these puppies.
