The Afghan Hound is a sight hound, first recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1926. It originated in Afghanistan where it was a hunting dog for royalty, pursuing gazelle, snow leopards and hare. The ideal size ranges from 25-27 inches tall at the withers, with a weight of 50 to 60 pounds and a long silky coat. Any and all color variations are acceptable. While the breed tends to be shy and aloof, it competes well in obedience and agility.
