Afghan is fascinating beauty dog. Its size ranges from 68 to 74 cm for males and from 63 to 69 cm for females. Its weight varies up to 28 kg. Its overall appearance combines power with elegance underlined by a sumptuous long silky dress with fine texture.
In his country of origin and in neighboring countries, he hunts deer, gazelle, wolf, fox and snow leopard. It is also used to keep and monitor flocks. The Afghan hound has a character at once content and calm, sensitive, willingly dominating, a bit susceptible and little demonstrative.
He shows himself very independent but deeply attached to his master and distant towards strangers. However, he gets along very well with children and his fellows. Like every greyhound, it must imperatively be able to spend and run often to keep his balance and stay in shape.
The independence of the Afghan hound makes it hard enough to train: it is recommended to arm itself with patience and a little experience if one plans to educate one.
