Introduction
The Afghan Hound is an aloof and dignified aristocrat of sublime beauty. Despite his regal appearance, he is known for his profound loyalty, sensitive nature, and absolute love for those he calls his own.
History
Because it was developed in some of the world’s most remote locales, its exact time and place of origin within the vast area that is now Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan will never be known. What we do know is that for centuries Afghans were rugged, fleet-footed hunting companions and status symbols of royals, tribal chieftains, and aristocrats in Asia’s mountain kingdoms.
General Appearance
They are famous for their elegant beauty. But the thick, silky, flowing coat that is the breed’s crowning glory
Pros - Cons

Afghan hounds do best on a diet of high-quality, protein-heavy food. Adult Afghans should eat about 2 to 2.5 cups of dry food a day divided into two meals, though dry food can be supplemented in part or entirely by wet food

Afghan Hound Exercise

Afghan Hounds are an energetic breed and need to be given at least two hours of exercise per day. They need to be able to run around, so off lead walks are essential! As well as their daily walks, they need a lot of mental stimulation through games and activities.

In Afghan Hounds, health problems can include hip and elbow dysplasia, juvenile cataracts; thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease that destroys the thyroid gland; laryngeal paralysis; and bleeding disorders such as von Willebrand disease.
