Gail Goodman's definitive book on Salukis Saluqi: Coursing Hound of the East

DC Midbar Haftah Asuwish Tabriz SC FCh

Born: 11/3/95
Call name: Ava
Breeder: Bernie Betlach, Gail Goodman, Joy Betlach
Owner: Judy and Charles Tantillo

The image of her dam, Shovov, Ava was chosen for her unique breeding and promise of athletic ability. She was not only a DC, but she was the first “desert bred” AKC Champion since the Pine Paddocks Salukis of the 1950s. Accomplishing this took determination since Ava was one of the first smooths many “show people” in her area had seen.

Ava was bred to DC Aarakis Boaz Asuwish CD and produced a litter of two smooth and four feathered puppies that did well in the show ring and on the lure coursing field. Ava liked nothing better than to spend her days hunting for the “creatures” that live in the Tantillo’s fields, and her nights snuggled as close as possible on the couch or bed.
