Unlike other sighthounds, the primary function of the Azawakh in
its native land is that of protector. It develops an intense bond
with his owner, yet can perform independently from its master.
With those they accept, Azawakh are gentle and extremely
affectionate. With strangers many are reserved and prefer not to
be touched, but are not inherently aggressive. Although raised to
protect livestock, they do not have innate aggression toward
canine nor human unless they are threatened.
Azawakh have high energy and tremendous endurance. They are
excellent training companions for runners and are nearly
impervious to heat. They will happily run in weather over 100
degrees Fahrenheit that would kill a Greyhound. They often dig
holes in the garden. Many Azawakh dislike rain and cold weather.
Azawakh are pack oriented and form complex social hierarchies.
They have tremendous memories and are able to recognize each
other after long periods of separation. They can often be found
sleeping on top of each other for warmth and companionship.
