Ahmadi Salukis are a small kennel that is owned by Ian Rasmussen and Phillip Bennett and we have had Salukis for close on 30 years. Over that time we have been very fortunate to have bred some very good quality dogs that have been very successful in the show ring. The main one of these is BISS, BIS and Australian Grand Champion Ahmadi My Name Is Jack. Jack was retired at 6 years of age as the winner of more Best in Show awards than any other Saluki in Australia's history with 52 Best in Show / Runner Up to Best in Show wins. Jack was also the winner of the second Queensland Dog of the Year contest.

His son Australian Grand Champion Willowmist the Hijacker was the number 1 Saluki in Australia in 2002 and 2003, as well as the Number 2 Hound in Australia in 2003.
