Baalbek (IND-Damascus)

Respected Source Validation Level

Female Saluki   (deceased)
Color: Grizzle
Owner: Brigadier-General F F Lance (Sarona)
Breeder: The Kaimarkan of Baalbek, Damascus
Sire: Selmah (IND-Desert)
Dam: Kachkari (IND-Desert)

Born in 1916. Given to General Lance by the Kaimarkan of Baalbek. Baalbek had 2 litters sired by Selughi. Remained in Damascus.

There is much discussion amongst saluki scholars that the sm associated with Baalbek means that she was a small grizzle bitch, not a smooth grizzle bitch. The fact that her offspring are all feathered would bear this theory out. Saluki genetics would predict 50% smooth offspring if indeed she had been smooth.
