      About Afghan Hounds

      The Afghan Hound is one of the ancient dog breeds – so ancient that many believe the Afghan was the dog rescued on Noah’s Ark. Known for their elegant beauty, the Afghan Hound has two distinctive features: a thick coat that served to protect it from harsh climates in the mountains of Afghanistan where it originated and a unique tail that curls to a point at the end. These agile, athletic dogs have devoted, pleasant personalities and do well with children and plenty of room to run.
