Salukis originated in the Fertile Crescent, an area in the Middle East known for its varying levels of elevation and diverse climates. The Saluki has been around as a domesticated breed since 7000 b. c. , though the group responsible for domestication is unclear. Early Salukis were used as hunting hounds for nomadic tribes. They excelled at hunting game such as fox, hare, jackal and gazelle. Hawks were often used by hunters to gauge out the eyes of gazelle so that Salukis could blindly hunt them. Salukis are slim, strong and adaptable which made them valuable assets to hunters.

The earliest Salukis most likely survived on a diet of hunted animals and scraps provided by their owners. Today, Salukis are most commonly kept as family companions. They are most prevalent in the Middle East, but are also found in small numbers in the United States. Salukis can be difficult to train, and may become destructive if left alone for long periods of time. Most Salukis receive significantly less exercise than working dogs of the past. Today, most Salukis are regarded as members of the family and are provided with many food options and advanced care. Because Salukis are less active than their predecessors, they may need less food to maintain optimal health.
