The dogs' natural capabilities are so good in spaces such as these chase, guarding & companionship. These Azawakh remains a very majestic-breed. 

You would find the dogs sleeping at the low straw-roofs of the owners in these villages of-Mali. If midnight predators known as hyena-approach, the Azawakh would jump down & start chasing-them. They will quickly of a pack among the different Azawakhs & chase off or either kill these impostors. The dogs are very fast while running, & can reach rates up to 40-miles in every hour.
