About Afghan Hound DogsAbout Afghan Hound Dogs

\r\n\r\nAfghan Hound Dogs are considered one of the oldest dog\r\nbreeds. They have a distinctive tail with a ring curl at the end. They are also\r\nhigh hipbones and an aloof but dignified temperament.

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

\r\n\r\nAfghan Hounds are also known by other names such as: Tazi,\r\nTazhi Spay, Da Kochyano Spay, Sage Balochi, Ogar Afgan, Eastern Greyhound, and\r\nwere also commonly called "Persian Greyhounds orBarukzy hounds" by\r\nthe British.

\r\n\r\nAfghan Hounds originally are Afghanistan mountains and were\r\nused as hunting dogs. They are a type of sighthound (a hound that primarily\r\nhunts by sign and speed instead of by scent and endurance).

\r\n\r\nToday, they are seldom used for hunting but are popular in\r\nEurope and America in lure coursing (an obstacle like sport that involves\r\nchasing a mechanically operated lure such as a rabbit through a course between\r\n600-1000 yards of varying difficulty).They\r\nare also used as therapy dogs and companions.\r\n\r\n
