Capable of amazing turns of speed , this ancient breed deserves its alternative name of gazelle hound . other aliases include Arabian hound , Persian greyhound . Persian sighthound , and Tanji . salukis closely resembles the hounds depicted in ancient egyptian art , and may have been deliberately bred for longer than most other dogs . they make gentle , loyal companions , reliable with children but not suitable for a boisterous household . plenty of exercise is an absolute must , and they have incorrigible urge to hunt any small animal they encounter .
