 Meet Our Judge 

Suzi Smith, Sundog Saloon Salukis, Lake Montezuma, AZ

I remember the first time I ever saw a Saluki. I had become friends with Tena Hawkes, (whom I give the credit to for introducing this breed to me) and started going to dog shows with Tena and her sister Jan. I knew that one day I would have one. That was around 18 years ago. My first Saluki was “Spyro” and I was forever smitten with the breed. My next Saluki was “Stoli”, what a dog! He was amazing! This dog taught me so much and he loved to show. Oh boy! Several years later I was ready for a new show puppy, and I then acquired Simon”. As I started to grow in more knowledge, I decided it was time to try lure coursing.

As time went on, I really started gaining more knowledge and growth and then decided to add another saluki to our pack, which was “Flare”. I continued showing and learning more and Flare even won a Best in Field and a Best in Specialty! After a few years we them fell in love with a little gold boy, Brewer”.

Sometime later my husband and I decided to breed our first litter. It didn’t quite go as planned and Flare delivered two healthy boys! We ended up keeping both pups from this litter and have had such an awesome time with them.

Many people I have met along the way have mentored, shaped and helped me learn over the years. I will look up to all these folks today

I really love this breed and for me I look for many qualities. I really pay close attention to structure and function along with an appealing look. This breed is very diverse and can have many differences amongst each other. I like a nice moderate dog, but I do look at the whole package.
