What's In A Name: Azawakh

The Azawakh is a loyal sighthound known to have a protective streak. It originated in the Sahel region of Africa, a desert area that includes parts of Mali and Niger, and a region called the Azawakh Valley, from where its name comes from. There, the Azawakh protected the nomadic Touareg people and guarded their tents, along with assisting them in hunting hare, antelope, and wild boar.
