Azawakh: A type of West African sighthound, the Azawakh has an elegant appearance with a very slight build and a feline-like gait. These dogs are somewhat timid by nature but once they get used to you they can be very affectionate. Traditionally used to hunt gazelles in their West African homeland, these dogs are still very rare outside of Africa. (Photo Credit: Azawakh Preservation International)
