The Sloughi originated in the deserts of North Africa, an area with mostly hot, dry weather. Sloughis are known to be an ancient breed, but little is known about the date of their origin or domestication. Early Sloughis were known for their ability to hunt game such as hare, fox, jackal, gazelle and wild pigs. Sloughis were the prized hunting companions of Berber Kings, Egyption nobles and nomadic chieftains. They were required to be tough hounds to survive in the harsh terrain and climate of the desert. A lean, muscular build and sharp sense of sight, gave Sloughis the ability to effectively catch their prey.

The earliest Sloughis most likely subsided on animals caught while hunting and scraps provided by their owner. In their native countries, modern Sloughis are still used as hunting and guard dogs. In the United States, they are more commonly kept as pets. Sloughis are a rare breed in the United States, ranking 192 in popularity by the American Kennel Club. Most Sloughis today are found in Libya, Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. Though Sloughis living in their native countries are still quite active, those living in the United States live a more sedentary lifestyle. Unlike early dogs that had to actively seek out food, today's Sloughis have many food options readily available to them. Sloughis in modern culture may not require the same amount of calories as earlier dogs due to a decrease in activity levels.
