Jefferson came to me as a six months old puppy. He was the
most beautiful dog I had ever seen and he fulfilled my
dream about once own a gold afghan hound with a black
mask. There is one person that Jefferson adored from day
one and that is Kevin, who back then was only five years
was quite tough and hard as a youngster and needed a firm
hand. When he was done acting as a rebel, he developed
into the kindest dog in the world and he still is. He
keeps the salukis in line and is "The Boss".
It is difficult to let him off leash, as he gladly takes
off, or just runs back to our car on our walks in the
We started training lure coursing with Jefferson and soon
he gained his lure coursing license. On his first
competition it was pouring down rain and I never thought
he would run one single meter, but he just loves it! He
was Best of Breed, and number five Best in Field.
Jefferson won some CACs during his show career and got
some nice placements, but he never finished. He just had a
horrible coat and that is why we chose to have his coat
cut. He loves that. He acts like a puppy each time his
coat is removed and he have had a bath.
Nowadays Jefferson refuses to move more than necessary and
he prefers to spend the day on my pillow.
Jefefrson died March 22nd 2012 from cancer. I am so
grateful to have him in my life for 10 years. Rest in
peace, my friend!
