Latif is the oldest of my current three salukis. He
was born 24th of July 1995 in Montlucon, France. His breeders are
Chantal Minet and late Henry Bouvier. His sire is Ch. Faysal de
Lunduki and his dam is Multi Ch. Fateh Icam de Cassandre. He is out of
a litter of six puppies. Four males and two females. His siblings
Laziza and Lhemir have had very successful show, race and lure
coursing careers in France.

Latif is also a beautiful male. He quickly won his
Norwegian title and has several BOB and Group placings. He has been
retired from the ring for many years, but have made some reappearances
in 2006 and 2007 in the veteran class with success winning three Best
In Shows, in three shows.
Latif has sired one litter. He was mated to the
beautiful "Trixie" Barakisch Javedani Liaqat, from Sweden. It was a
litter of six puppies, and you can see them on the Barakisch homepage.
