Intro to the Afghan Hound

Country of Origin: Afghanistan
Date of Origin: Antiquity/1600’s

Original use: Large-game hunting
Life Expectancy: 12-14 years
Weight: 23-27 kg
Height: 64-74 cm

The gait of the Afghan Hound should be smooth and springy with a style of high order. The whole appearance of the dog should give the impression of strength and dignity combining speed and power with his head held proudly. Companion Afghans must be groomed daily otherwise the coat becomes matted.
