Tirgan, an extraordinary Saluki. Either loved or reviled because of her pattern, it is her movement she should be known for. Light, effortless, ground covering, perfect Saluki Movement.
Tirgan is a Generation 3, Persian descent, through her dam. Sired by DE CH, VDH CH, AT CH, S&L, DE LCCH, INT LCCH, CLU, DE VET CH, VDH VET CH Persian El Mahbub a very accomplished coursing and racing male in Germany who also finished his Beauty and Performance title, Tirgan most resembles him in stripes. Her pattern comes from the Persian import *Derafsch, himself an amazing male not exported to Germany until his hunting days were over. *Derafsch was a producer of fast Salukis and this has carried down through Tirgan who has great talent on both sides of her pedigree.
