The Saluki. The Saluki is the fastest animal. It is tied with the cheetah. If the Saluki(dog) and the Cheetah would have a race, the Saluki would win. The cheetah can run for a short amount of time, but the Saluki can run for a longer period of time. If the cheetah didn't run out of breath so quickly, then it would most defintley win in front of the Saluki by a few metres.
No, Cleopatra could not possibly have a greyhound, because the greyhound as we know it, originated with the Celts. The hounds shown on many Egyptian tombs are believed to be Saluki, originating in ancient Persia. There is also another breed of dog popular in ancient Egypt called today a Pharaoh Hound. This and the Saluki may be the same.
