The breed of dog known as aidi is also called the Chien de l'Atlas, The breed originated in Morocco and was bred as a shepherd, to herd and protect flocks of sheep and goats. It is also possessed of a keen sense of smell, and is good at hunting as well. In Morocco, it is sometimes used in tandem with the sloughi, a member of the sighthound family. In that partnership, the aidi tracks down the prey using his scenting ability and the sloughi then takes over, chasing the prey down.
