The pariah dog of Afghanistan...

... is a lithe, elegant, graceful creature.






(For those of you who don't know, this is Selma. She's my current foster dog, and was originally from Afghanistan. A soldier brought her back with him, but ended up not being able to afford her care.)

If she's got anything in her, it's probably Saluki.... but most likely she's simply a standard pariah dog, they're not a breed but definitely a "type" with an established appearance and temperament. Pariahs are interesting dogs!

Bahaha great pic...and she is very cool looking. I'm surprised she doesn't have tons of apps with such good looks and an interesting history. I saw on IDR fb page that she will be at an event near me in a couple weeks...will you be there with her?

Wow, she is gorgeous. But that first picture made me guffaw, which startled Elka off the couch

There probably is quite a lot of Saluki in the Afghanistan pariah dog "bloodline"....might account for the brindling as well? Or I'm just talking. ^^

You have moved the child half way around the world. The magnetic fields here are pulling her every which wayyyyyyy!

It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them, and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are.

I am just curious, how was the soldier able to bring back a dog from another country and be in the military?

She is one darn Lucky Dog, Lucky Dog.

No clue - I'm guessing while he was over there he probably befriended her, and once he left he arranged to have her sent stateside somehow. It happens occasionally, but I think it's a lot of work.

There are groups that rescue dogs from Iraq and the middle east. Possibly they help soldiers get dogs home?
