About the Afghan Hound breed

Afghan Hounds are sight hounds originating from Afghanistan, they hunt by sight. In the UK Afghan Hounds belong to the Hound Group, while under FCI rules they are placed in Group X (Sighthounds). They have distinctive characteristics and features which make them unique. Their instinct is to chase and catch anything that is running. In their native country they were used to hunt antelope and gazelle and even snow leopards. They have very good vision, strong jaws. They have lean muscular bodies, a deep chest to house their lungs, and long powerful legs. In their native country their thick coat protected them against extreme cold of the upper snow regions, but equally shielded them from the sun in the desert areas. Read more >>>
