A unique collection of documents and artefacts from the earliest days of the Afghan Hound in the UK to the present day.

The AHA is most fortunate in owning a very extensive and valuable archive collection of the breed from the earliest imports to the UK. Much of this collection was carefully organised into three Albums by Ann Adams during her time as secretary of the AHA. Heather Bunney succeeded Ann as archivist and has continued to look after the existing material and to extend the collection. Many afghan hound enthusiasts may have seen the archive but with the help and encouragement of David Paton and Jan Fielder we are now in a position to add some of this material to our website.
