Azawakh are Tremendous Leapers

The combination of a vertical format, low body mass and powerful muscles yield tremendous jumping ability in Azawakh. In West Africa I once saw a Fulani dog leap over a 10 foot wall. It took the dog two tries.

 Azelouan leaped the stream and landed safe and dry on the other side. I was able to position myself to capture this image because he does this all the time.
