FCI INTERNATIONAL BREEDING STRATEGIES
To preserve, or preferably extend, the genetic diversity of the breed,
matador breeding and
heavy inbreeding should be avoided. Mating between siblings, mother to son or
daughter should never be performed.
Baron Piero Renai della Rena- Sighthounds-
Its beauty has always been identified with the perfectionof its functional qualities.Some
millenium ago starting from the Arabian desert it
spread all over the world changing into breeds with their own features; but
everywhere this elegant son of the wind has kept unchanged both its refined
elegance and the wonderful structure of a perfect engine create for
speed and hunt. Its loyalty is endless, its love is characterized by
aristocratic control and its courage is without limits. These are very precious
qualities, but they can hardly be understood. it's just for these reasons
that Sighthounds are not dogs for everyone.
