The Azawak (pronounced ‘AH-zah-wahk’) were originally bred by nomadic tribes of sub Saharan Africa, like the Tuareg and the Fula. They are known as ‘Aidi N'Ailluli’, which means ‘Noble Dogs of the Free People’.
Big fans of hot temperatures (they don’t like being cold and wet), they are technically sighthounds, bred to hunt independently from humans.
What makes them unusual as sighthounds, however, is their strong pack instinct. Some say that in their native Africa, they are considered fully-fledged members of the tribe. Chances are their intelligence and loyalty make them invaluable members of your tribe too.
