June 16, 2017: Meet Herbie.  Otherwise known by his foster family in Qatar simply as “Love Bug.”  We do not have to convince you that Herbie is super affectionate and loves people – you can see it in his eyes! (He also really likes other dogs and we hear he ignores cats.)


We know little about Herbie’s background. He is about one-and-a-half years old and a Smooth Saluki X.  This means he is fast, loves to run and has a lot of endurance and health. Yes, he is lean, but that is how they are. Herbie bonds deeply to his people and enjoys daily stimulation and exercise.  While he knows where he belongs and wants to stay at your side, he is a sight hound and curious about all the stuff he “sees.”


Herbie was found on the streets or an industrial site in Qatar and then taken to a provisional boarding facility.  Unfortunately he did fare well there and did not get the exercise and nutrition needed for this beautiful boy.  He was released to a wonderful foster who  gave Herbie the best of care, exercise and love. Just look at him now!

Herbie is ready for adoption and he can go anywhere in North America.  If you want to know more about him, please write us at contact@dhex.org with the subject line “Herbie.”


We hope to hear from you so we can tell you more about Herbie, the “Love Bug.”
