About Afghan Hound DogsAbout Afghan Hound Dogs

Afghan Hound Dogs are considered one of the oldest dog breeds. They have a distinctive tail with a ring curl at the end. They are also high hipbones and an aloof but dignified temperament.

Afghan Hound Dogs are taller than most breeds (about 24–29 inches tall and weighs between 45–60 pounds). They range in color from fawn to gold, brindle, white, red, cram, blue, gray and tri-color. They have a long, fine-textured coat that requires considerable care and grooming. They also have a distinctive long topknot and shorter-haired saddle. Typically they have black on their faces. Some even have moustaches known as a Fu Manchu. This type of moustache on Afghan Hounds is called “mandarins.”

Afghan Hounds are also known by other names such as: Tazi, Tazhi Spay, Da Kochyano Spay, Sage Balochi, Ogar Afgan, Eastern Greyhound, and were also commonly called "Persian Greyhounds orBarukzy hounds" by the British.

Afghan Hounds originally are Afghanistan mountains and were used as hunting dogs. They are a type of sighthound (a hound that primarily hunts by sign and speed instead of by scent and endurance).

Today, they are seldom used for hunting but are popular in Europe and America in lure coursing (an obstacle like sport that involves chasing a mechanically operated lure such as a rabbit through a course between 600-1000 yards of varying difficulty).They are also used as therapy dogs and companions.
