Afghan Hound

The Canine Chronicles Directory

Afghan Hound

The Afghan Hound has an aristocratic bearing and commanding stature. It is tall and slender with a long, narrow, refined head, silky topknot and powerful jaws. The ears lie flat to the head and the dark eyes are almond shaped. The neck is long and strong holding their head high revealing their nobility and elevated self-esteem. The height at the withers (shoulder blades) should be almost level and the abdomen tucked up. The front legs are strong and straight. The feet are large and covered with long hair. The hipbones are quite prominent. The tail is tipped with a curl or ring, but does not carry over the back. The long, rich, silky coat is most often a sand-like color with darker face and ears. When showing the dog, white markings are discouraged.

Temperament Afghan Hounds tend to be distant with strangers but are extremely loyal and affectionate to their owners. Despite their shyness around strangers, they are very much people-orientated dogs. Many are especially good with children. Afghan's usually develop their personalities between the age of 7 and 16 months, therefore proper socialization and training during this time is imperative because of their sensitive natures.

Male Height: 27-29" ; Weight: 55-62 lbs.

Exercise The breed loves open spaces and must be allowed to run free in a safe area as well as having long daily walks. It needs a minimum of 30 minutes of free galloping per day.
Life Expectancy About 9-15 years
Grooming The long coat, which is finely textured, requires considerable grooming and care and should be provided by a skilled groomer.
Origin The Afghan Hound is one of the most ancient of dogs. Legend states that this breed was taken onto the Ark with Noah. Although, there is no concrete proof to this legend, the Afghan's pedigree is without a doubt pre-Christian. Northern African sight-hounds migrated into the cool mountains of Afghanistan and the hounds with the heaviest coats were selected to breed for necessity, creating the Afghan. The breed spread into the surrounding territories where they assisted both hunters and shepherds. The Afghan Hounds' high hip bones enabled him greater flexibility in the mountain ranges. In Afghanistan, the breed was initially used to guard sheep and cattle, and to hunt deer, wolves, gazelles and foxes. The aristocratic Afghan was no pussycat, hunting leopards and panthers single-handedly to the kill. Afghan Hounds were also the favorite of Afghani nobility assisting in the sport of falconry. The Afghan Hound is recognized by the AKC and the UKC.
Group AKC Hound, UKC Sighthound and Pariah Dog
