The Azawakh bonds strongly to a single person or family. Puppies that are not properly socialized or older dogs that are re-homed often find it difficult to adjust. This is a highly intelligent breed that needs the occasional run for exercise, but is also happy as a house and guard dog. With its reserved, aloof manner and temperament this is not a good dog for play, especially with younger children.
