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

Midbar Haftaah Nadira Tabriz

Born: 11/3/95
Call name: Nadira
Breeder: Bernie Betlach, Gail Goodman, Joy Betlach
Owner: Gail Goodman

Haftaah (surprise!) is just what Shovov’s second litter was, slipping out the back door with all too willing Wizz! What good fortune they did.

During the whelping, Joy and I were in constant contact. She asked me, “If you could wish for any puppy, what would you wish?” “A tri-bitch”. “Well, Shovovi just had one and she’s yours”. And so I got my “precious surprise”, Nadira.

Not only stunning and sound, she was sweet natured and obedient. Nadira drew the eye of everyone who visited. On the single occasion competitively coursed, she demonstrated speed and desire. The poor cottontails know her cunning. She was everything I could hope for, a dream to live with, a joy to look at.

Nadira had her litter sired by Ch Odi et Amo Balthasar Elessar JC on January 15, 2003. There were 5 bitches and 3 dogs in the litter. View the litter information and photos. So far, one bitch from the litter, Layla, has her AKC JC title and another, Tari, has 2 CACs in Germany.
