The history of the canine race may be very different without the Phoenician. These Lebanese merchants, who are from present-day Lebanon, traded goods in the Mediterranean 2,500 years ago. It is believed that the Phoenicians spread across the ancient world of Egypt, as far as Britain was in the west. The prevailing theory suggests that the Phoenicians introduced the Pharaohs to Malta, where they were used as rabbit hunters. In 1979, Pharaoh was named the national base of Malta.
