The Oldest Domesticated Dog Breed, the Saluki is originally from the Middle East, and is known as the Persian Greyhound. Back in ancient Iran, Salukis were used by nomadic tribes for hunting, but the breed is now generally kept as pets. Cave art painted as early as 10,000 BCE in Iran appears to depict Salukis accompanying hunters.
