Afghan Hound

The Afghan Hound is elegance personified. This unique and ancient dog breed has an appearance quite unlike any other: dramatic silky coat, exotic face, and thin, fashion-model build. Looks aside, Afghan enthusiasts describe this hound as both aloof and comical.

Affectionate and adaptable, these dogs do well in just about any size of home with any size of family. That said, you’ll need to spend quite a bit of time maintaining that luxurious coat, not to mention plenty of exercise to handle their high energy levels. If you can provide the care that they need, you’ll have a loving companion for life. And one who will surely turn heads with their gorgeous looks!

Hailing from Afghanistan, where the original name for the breed was Tazi, the Afghan is thought to date back to the pre-Christian era and is considered one of the oldest dog breeds.
