Fine, always falling, flat, broad at the base, close to the skull, triangular with slightly rounded tip, never rose ears.
Set low, long, thin, lean, tapered, with white brush at the tip.
Smooth, fine, down to none on the belly.
Azawakhs are originally from the area around the Azawakh valley, from which they take their name. These are especially slender, elegant animals, which give a general impression of great finesse. Their bones and muscles can be seen through their fine, lean tissue and skin. Azawakhs are racy-looking dogs with rectangular bodies that move with great suppleness, with feet particularly high when trotting and walking, while the gallop is bouncy.
