The Afghan Hound is thought
to be one of the oldest of all domestic Dog breeds, with the first
records of the Afghan Hound dating back to 4,000 BC. The fast and
agile nature of this Dog meant that they made excellent hunters of
small game in their native Afghanistan, most commonly hunting Deer,
Goats, Gazelle and Wild Boar along with seeing off larger predators
such as Wolves and Snow Leopards. Their gentle nature also made this
elegant sight-hound a doting shepherd, fearlessly protecting
livestock from hungry predators. This beautiful but gently natured
watchdog was brought to Britain in the early 1920s and its entry to
the USA followed in 1926. The elegance of the Afghan Hound meant
that they quickly became highly desirable Dogs, both as pets and for
show.

The Afghan Hound is a
dignified sight hound with an independent spirit. The personalities
within the breed differ drastically, but all Afghans are loyal,
loving companions when placed with an active, loving family! Afghan
Hounds need regular exercise.

Often described as a dog of regal
and majestic stature. The Afghan is most noticeably distinguished by
its silky, flowing coat. This fine, single coat is long all over
apart from the top knot, or brow, and over the saddle area on the
back.
