Favorite Images of Afghan Hounds

Animals list created by kathy Avatar

A list of my favorite images of Afghan Hounds.


The Afghan Hound is a dog that is distinguished by its thick, fine, silky coat and its tail with a ring curl at the end. The breed acquired its unique features in the cold mountains of Afghanistan.

Other names for this breed are Kuchi Hound, Tฤzฤซ, Balkh Hound, Baluchi Hound, Barakzai Hound, Shalgar Hound, Kabul Hound, Galanday Hound or sometimes incorrectly African Hound.

The Afghan Hound has been identified as a basal breed that predates the emergence of the modern breeds in the 19th Century. It is most closely related to the Saluki.

There are at least 13 types known in Afghanistan and some are being developed (through breeding and record keeping) into modern purebred breeds.

The spectacular beauty of Afghan Hound dogs caused them to become highly desirable showdogs and pets and they are recognised by all of the major kennel clubs in the English-speaking world.

The Afghan Hound breed is no longer used for hunting, although it can be seen in the sport of lure coursing.
