This article is from the Lure Coursing FAQ, by Bonnie Dalzell with numerous contributions by others.
As of 1994 The AKC breeds that can participate in AKC Lure Coursing
included 11 recognized sighthound breeds: Afghans, Basenjis, Borzoi,
Ibizan Hounds, Irish Wolfhounds, Greyhounds, Pharaoh Hounds, Salukis,
Scottish Deerhounds, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Whippets.
The AKC's policy is that a sighthound breed is a sighthound breed if
the breed's parent club considers the breed to be a sighthound. This
has, as you can imagine, led to some really intense rhetoric on the
definition of a sighthound. We will wisely avoid this controversial
matter of definition in this FAQ.
