General Information Frequently Asked Questions Breed Review


Although believed to be one of the oldest breeds in the world, the modern history of this sight hound is mainly as a hunting and guard dog of Afghanistan and Northern India. The first Afghan Hounds came to Great Britain in the late 1800s and to the United States in the late 1930.

The Afghan in a bold animal and very courageous. Because he was bred to run down animals such as deer, antelope, wolves, and leopards, he is a very agile dog with great stamina. The Afghan is also very regal, highly dignified and aristocratic in demeanor. Although he is not to be shy, he is reticent around strangers. This fact and the care which his coat needs, means the Afghan is not the dog for everybody.

The Afghan's head is long with little or no stop and has a level bite. A topknot of long silky hair atop the head is an Afghan Hound characteristic. To be able to do what he was bred for, his structure must enable him to adapt to various types of terrain from broken, boulder-strewn hill country to vast deserts. He should move with a smooth and powerful stride.

Distinctive to the Afghan is the hair on the shoulders, back, saddle and flank which is short and silky in the adult dog . The hair on the rest of the body is long, silky and fine in texture. All colors are acceptable but white markings on the head are not desired. The height and weight of the Afghan should range from 26 to 28 inches and 60 pounds in males and from 24 to 26 inches and 50 pounds in females.
