i actually quite liek simoon...
many "skipped" years, no more than 2 litters a year, most of their dogs are titled.
low vaccination schedual and helth testing.

their dogs a lovely examples, and the CGC and therapy titling on a couple is nice as the breed tends to be rather standoffish by nature...

though in all honesty i dont feel breeding that natrual behaviour out of a breed is nessicarily a good thing (it would be like breeding the protective instinct out of a fila)...
but i do like if they are focusing on a more "general public frinedly" there not just saying "family frinedly" there proving it with the likes of therapy dog titling which in the breed can be tough.

ive only ever met 2 azawahka in my life, 1 here in the us, he was stunning and very frinedly, from simoon, the other in the uk who i dont remember the breeders name, but he was incredibly warey of strangers, not just aloof but down right standoffish, however he was AMAZING in the feild and a wonderfull example of the breed in that sense.

absolutly stunning breed...depending on what your looking for in a dog.

I do. I have gotten a few working dogs from them. They are great as far as i'm concerned. Not only do they breed, they work and know their dogs strengths and weaknesses.

having a button or not doesn't make a good breeder, just like having hip clearnaces done or not doesn't make or break a breeder either.

just because you click and make a deposit doesn't mean you get a puppy or trained dog. they have it there for convenience. a button or lack thereof does not make a breeder good or bad.

there is a difference if its for deposits or a way to get you to pay up for a pup they will then ship out.

I would still rather see the paypal button on a hidden page (or not seen as it may be) So as not to 'sell' the idea that buying a dog over the internet is a good plan.

Exactly.

Maybe I should I have said a "Buy NOW" option instead?

I was talking to this breeder years ago. Asking price for a puppy was unreasonably high then. I do not know how it is now. E-mail David Moore. He has quality Azawakhs, true to the original type from Sahel.
It depends on your budget. Sloughi is very few and far between in our country, but essentially, Sloughi is almost the same as Saluki. They can hunt the same game and the same way as Saluki does and they have all the same qualities.

I am not wanted it for hunting. I am wanting it for a pet.

I thought this breeder was very reasonable. he quoted me around $700 for a neutered male

If this dog is from working stock, will it's prey drive be too high for a 'safe' pet (considering you have the bunnies)? Or is that why he's neutered and available ... because he has 'low' drive? (I'm not trying to pick, just curious ...)

bunnies will be in another room behind closed doors.
on that websites it said that they are pets first and foremost. they were bred to be better pets (some azas can be aggressive and just all around bad pets)

I asked about having one with cats and she said that if raised with house cats they are good with cats. but an outdoor cat is free game!
