General info

Dignified and aloof, the Afghan is an aristocrat among dogs. It is an excellent hunter, though mostly appreciated for its spectacular appearance and as a show dog. Covered with thick, silky hair, which comes in various colors, the Afghan Hound, in fact, resembles a greyhound in build and is known for its ability to chase the fleet game and double-suspension gallop. Its high pelvis and a short back, meanwhile, allow the breed to turn easily and jump great heights, both must-have characteristics for a dog that originally chased game on rocky terrain. The Afghan Hound's big feet also offer it protection from injuries incurred from running on rough ground, while the silken coat is effective in beating the cold.
