There is a Swedish law against breeding dogs who heritage genetic disease. Inputs exposing diseases have been taking down on three different Swedish forum for Saluki.This is against the international law for free speech. Moreover a terrible disrespect to the breed and with the purpose to hide information to new breeders and puppy buyers.

The Swedish Saluki Society don´t encourage breeders to test their breeding material for von Willebrand, CL or other autoimmune diseases, yet there are options in Sweden to have tests done! What are they afraid of?

In the Swedish Sight-hound Magazin back in the late 1970´ is an article was published about people visiting Saudi Arabia bringing photos of their salukis. When viewed by Saudi Arabian owners of salukis they laughed, pointed at the feets with the comment "those feets are not fit for running in sand" because they point straight forward.

Ji-Ji is not yet shown.

 Wellknown European bredeer of saluki about Ji-Ji;

 "To me as a breeder known to have a keen eye for the breed, I am most impressed to meet a true great quality old fashion saluki. Before the time, that we breeders got lost in soundness, before the time we got lost in elegance and exaggerations.This deep warm chocolate dog, with the breed typical grace, hardly pronounced stop in the head, long scalp and yet with strong under jaw, long elegant but masculine neck, great laid back shoulders, bent of wrist pasterns, great tuck up and top line showing flexibility kept amazing me more and more in every breed detail, which seems lost in now a days stock. Amazing, breed typical functional bent of the knees and use of them, showing balance in every way, from first tie and second tie, nice low hooks, great dept of chest, indeed a dream of our ancient old Saluki, still to be found in this dog Ji-Ji, reality and present in Sweden. I can't find a single item in him to fault, a really honor to have been able to see his beauty and nothing else than my compliments to his breeder."

Blue Shiraz have a strong gen pool, we have consolidate our breeding back on Sedeki Malsa, a bitch with a powerful immune defense. In 1980 we had 6 salukis, 5 were infected by parvo. We  lost Shaykh Shiraz in the virus. Sedeki Malsa was not infected, not a sign of sickness and with her as our foundation bitch our breeding is producing healthy salukis free from autoimmune diseases.


Brott mot paragraf 12,s andra punkt ger straffpåföljd.

" 2. avel med sådan inriktning som kan medföra lidande för djuren eller påverka djurens naturliga beteenden."

 "med sådan inriktning" innefattas även där det bevisligen har förekommit /förekommer htt ärftliga sjukdomar som CL/hjärnförtvining och inga åtgärder har vidtagits för att ta föräldradjur/syskon eller avkomma ur avel.

Hamadans Benjamin lämnade på Hamahdans kennel Cebastian och Colman som båda fick CL enligt kennels innehavare och konstaterat vid obduktion. Benjamin ligger bakom och linjeavlas på hos svenska kennlar. CL nedärves till båda könen. Läs mer här

Enligt 2 § i Djurskyddsmydighetens föreskrifter L 102, (DFS 2004:18) får djur som nedärver missbildning eller andra egenskaper, som medför lidande för avkomman eller negativt påverkar avkommans naturliga funktioner, inte användas i avel.

Ett djur får inte heller användas i avel om det nedärver disposition för hög frekvens allvarliga sjukdomsfall eller förlossningssvårigheter eller om det saknar förmåga att föröka sig på ett naturligt sätt. Denna bestämmelse har tillkommit för att följa de rekommendationer som Europarådets konvention om djurskydd för sällskapsdjur antagit.


Enligt Europarådets konvention ska hänsyn tas till anatomiska, fysiologiska och beteendemässiga egenskaper som kan äventyra antingen avkommans eller moderns hälsa och välbefinnande. Avsikten med paragrafen är bland annat att ge stöd för de bekämpningsprogram mot ärftliga defekter som i dag genomförs inom många rasklubbar.

En hund som behandlats för autoimmun sjukdom och till synes ej visar sjukdoms symptom efter behandling, har sjukdomen liggande latent och skall givitvis inte användas i avel.

A dog treated for autoimmune disease and not showing any symptoms after medical treatment, still has the disease latent and should not be used for breeding.

Observera; Hos en äldre hund finns en naturligt ökad förekomst av lipofucin, alltså ej att förväxla med Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis.




Observe; Older dogs have an increasing amount of lipofuscin, not to be mistaken for Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis.


Blue Shiraz Salukis var och är fria från CL, autoimmuna sjukdomar samt von Willebrand

Blue Shiraz Salukis were and are free from CL, autoimmune diseases and

von Willebrand

Observe! It takes ONE parent who is a carrier of von Willebrand

category 1 to forward it to offspring.

Observera! Det räcker att EN förälder är bärare av von Willebrand

kategori 1 för att ge sjuk avkomma.

If you choose a Saluki puppy from Sweden, Finland and Norway, demand it is tested and free from Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (brain vanishing) and von Willebrand (bleeders) OBSERVE both male and female are carriers and both gender can develope the disease.

Om du väljer att köpa en Saluki valp från en svensk, finsk eller norsk uppfödare, kräv att den och dess föräldrar är testade och fria från Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (hjärnförtvining) och från vonWillebrand (blödarsjuka) Observera att både hane och tik är bärare och båda könen kan utveckla sjukdomen.

 *Emotser att ägare av individ inom Saluki som är i avel i dag och är i nedstigande led från avelshund eller tik som lämnat avkomma med CL eller vars syskon lämnat avkomma med CL låter testa avelshund eller tik för CL samt upplyser valpköpare om att deras hund kan vara bärare av CL.*

Blue Shiraz Brahma and his son Blue Shiraz Dakar, owner Blue Shiraz, were both used at a Swedish kennel where they gave excellent type of offspring and the breeder for the first time a runner up breeders group at Skokloster, (sired by Brahma and Dakar).

What the breeder and owner of the bitch mated to Blue Shiraz Dakar did not tell; a brother of the bitch was under veterinarian treatment for autoimmune disease ( incurable) during the same time period she used Dakar.

It is with deepest sadness that the breeder later used a stud dog breed by a Swedish kennel where CL has been confirmed (brain vanishing disease) to Blue Shiraz offspring. We do not want to have our healthy bloodline mixed with lines carrying any kind of hereditery disease. Our line was and is utterly needed for breeders who preserve healthy salukis.

The breeder mentioned above is in the situation she has to blood test future offspring if she is foolish to breed on any of them, and to inform the puppy buyers in Sweden and other countries. I am looking forward to she is honest to do that ! Where is the respect to heritage and tradition?

I have worked hard for the Saluki health, appreciated by veterinarian Lars Falk and the animal inspector. The Saluki is high risk to be destroyed due to lack of respect and responsibility to the breed.

The Norwegian English Setter Club has set up a list with stud dogs free from CL, no other stud dogs or female than on the list, tested and free from CL may be used. I am looking forward to that the Swedish Saluki Club is doing the same with no delay and with respect to the Saluki, with a hard control the problem could be solved in a few years.

The desert type of Saluki is already among endangered animals.

Canine von Willebrand's Disease

Excellent information on vWD >>>

 Klicka här för nedanstående text i svart mot vit bakgrund

 Blue Shiraz Salukis are free from and have not show any signs of the diseases below;

Blue Shiraz Salukis är fria från och har ej visat symptom på de sjukdomar som är nämnda nedan;

Anesthetic Idiosyncrasy, Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia, Behavioral Abnormalities, Cataract, Corneal dystrophy, Detached Retina Entropion, Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis, Persistent Pupillary Membrane, Progressive Retinal Atrophy, Retinal Dysplasia, Thrombocytopenia, von Willebrands Disease

 Following are health screenings often performed on breeding Saluki adults; choosing a puppy from a breeder who tests parents for health can help avoid future health problems in your puppy:

CERF Screening (Canine Eye Research Foundation)

Hip Dysplasia (OFA or PennHIP)

Thyroid Function Test (blood test)

vonWillebrand's Disease (vWD) (factor antigen test)

Material from;   (kopiera och klistra länken i adressfältet)

OBS! En individ kan vara bärare men ej själv visa tecken på CL. Den kan dock få avkommasom ger CL om den paras med en bärare.

Arvsgången är recessiv, hanhund och tik måste båda vara bärare för att få sjuk avkomma, paras två bärare blir 25% sjuka, 50% bärare och 25% friska. Paras en bärare med en ikke bärare blir 50% av avkomman bärare. Det går alltså inte att  som en svensk uppfödare av saluki sa till mig att "spä ut sjuka blodslinjer med friskt blod så de sjuka blodet försvinner" Sunt förnuft och ansvar lyser med sin frånvaro inom svensk saluki avel. Inom Engelsk setter slutade man avla på avkommor till avelshundar som gav CL. Syskon till bärare togs ur avel. Ett effektivt bekämpningsprogram pågår fortlöpande. Inom salukiavel fortsätter uppfödare att avla på blodslinjer där CL förekommit/förekommer.
