Sighthounds at Elangeni

We also share our home with a Saluki and a Pharaoh Hound who keep things interesting!
Both are owned by Emma who has a heavy passion for and involvement in Sighthounds.

Australian Champion
Padtheway Schiram Qafra

" Qafra "

Qafra is the first Saluki (of what will be many more) here at Elangeni and she has created a spot that will never be filled. Qafra has a beautiful pedigree, her father, MBIS/MBISS Grand Ch. Kiabe Qariban, was the winner of 34 Best in Shows including the prestigious, Sydney Royal Easter Show and her mother, BISS Int. Swe. Nor. Aust Ch. El Adini Ismina Beh Schiram (Imp Sweden) is the most beautiful, sweet bitch. Qafra, however much prefers to lie in the sun or on her 6 layer "Princess Bed" than to be shown, so she has only gone to be a show dog when and only when it suits her. She however with limited showing is a Best in Group and Multi Class in Group winner. She was the dog Emma learnt to Show with. In April 2008 working beautifully with Emma at the Saluki Club Beauty Match judged by, Hamad Ghanem Shaheen Al Ghanem, a 5th Generation Saluki breeder and Director of the Arabian Sauki Centre in Dubai, Qafra and Emma were awarded Best Bitch and Runner Up Best In Show. Qafra and Emma are soul mates.
