Dog Care for an Azawakh
We have been housesitters a lot - all over Europe and with all kinds of pets. Now we have a house and a dog of our own and sometimes we need a bit of back-up.

Responsibilities & Pets
Our dog, Lumen, is an Azawakh, a kind of sighthound that comes from Mali. They're traditionally bred by the Tuareg people as watchdogs, and they're not you're typical cuddly, drooly doggy. They're totally independent and nervous about new people and new things. Lumen is a sweet dog and doesn't mind other dogs at all. She's been very well socialized with kids and dogs. But she's also totally attached to us. So leaving her with other people is a challenge. She'll probably whine and cry and eventually fall asleep. But you have to keep an eye on her at all times because she's crafty and an escape artist.
She's also only 9 months old, so we're hoping to keep teaching her to deal with being separated from us. We try to make it as easy as possible, but it's never going to be simple with her.
