The Azawakh seem to possess an uncanny combination of total loyalty and independence. Each new situation presents the potential for the struggle between the dog’s natural desire to please and his prideful desire to do things his own way. A firm, fair hand is called for. Properly socialized and trained, the Azawakh will live harmoniously within the family and community. A well socialized Azawakh is affectionate, gentle, playful, subtle and very loyal to its owner.  Some Azawakhs, having bonded with one particular person, do not change ownership withease. Azawakhs are usually cautious with strangers. They typically observe fora while before approaching. Azawakhs raised in kennel situations, with little socialization, are typically very shy. They are usually nervous, frightened and may freeze in a new situation.  The Azawakh is  very dominant within a  pack, they will almost always aspire to the alpha dog position. If there is an existing dominant dog in the pack, this can sometimes cause conflict within the pack.

When looking for a puppy to purchase it is highly recommended to contact any of the Breed Clubs we have listed for this breed since it is they who should be able to put you in touch with members who have bred litters according to their Club’s Code of Ethics.

BUYER BEWARE; Some breeders listed here may not be members of an Azawakh Breed Club, there may be good reasons for this, but ask the question before you enter into any transaction.
