& tail etc?I've got a saluki lurcher (I thinkshes half saluki) who's 15 weeks old & her ears a fluffing up but I'm curious about how feahery they will be & if she'ss have a feathery tail/back of her legs-there's no sign of either yet, just the ears.

My Saluki's feathers really 'kicked off' growth wise when she was about eight months old, though she's still not all that hairy as Salukis go. I think it varies a lot between individuals.
Best to use a snood, and brush ears only when wet to keep the ear feathering in nice condition.
