Referred to as an aristocrat, the
Afghan Hound's appearance is one
of dignity and aloofness. Well
covered with thick, silky hair, very
fine in texture, the Afghan hound's
coat is a sort found among animals
native to high altitudes. They can
come in all colors, and while the
breed is an excellent hound (hunting
by sight) its popularity here has
been generated by the breeds'
spectacular qualities as a show dog.
