Afghan HoundAfghan Hound Description: The Afghan Hound is a sighthound with an aristocratic bearing. Tall and slender with a long, narrow, refined head, silky topknot and powerful jaws. The occiput is quite prominent. The Afghan Hound muzzle is slightly convex ("Roman nose") with a black nose. There is little or no stop. The Afghan Hound teeth should meet in a level or scissors bite. The dark eyes are almond shaped. The ears lie flat to the head. The Afghan Hound neck is long and strong. The height at the withers should be almost level and the abdomen well tucked up. The hipbones are quite prominent. The Afghan Hound front legs are strong and straight and the feet are large and covered with long hair. The tail has a curl or ring at the tip, but is not carried over the back. The Afghan Hound long, rich, silky coat is most often the color of sand with a darker face and ear fringes, though all colors are permitted. White markings, however, are discouraged.
Afghan Hound Temperament: Dignified, somewhat aloof, but very sweet, loyal, affectionate and sensitive, with a low dominance level. Afghan Hounds must be trained kindly. The Afghan has been described as "a king of dogs."   Majestic, elegant, noble and courageous, suspicious of, but not hostile to, strangers. Although tough, Afghan Hounds will pine if they are deprived of attention. Afghan Hounds will do best with older, considerate children. At one time, the breed had a reputation for being untrustworthy, but has now been replaced by a character that, while still spirited, is said to be more amenable to training and discipline, as they can be disobedient if it is poorly trained. Afghan Hounds can be difficult to housebreak. Some are timid and high strung.

Afghan Hound Height: Dogs 27 to 29 inches (68.58-73.66cm) slightly less for bitches.

Afghan Hound Weight: 58-64lb (26-34kg.)
