Pharaoh Hound  


As its name suggests, this dog comes from Egypt and has been a treasured hunter and companion since as far back as 3000 BC! They are a medium sized breed with regal confidence and intelligence. Their short, sleek coat can be tan to chestnut to red golden with some white markings allowed. Hunters at heart, they are determined and athletic and their owners must provide outlets for these proclivities. They have a strong prey instinct so exercise areas should be fenced to prevent unexpected chases that may lead into danger. Their natural smarts and fun-loving personalities make them entertaining and engaging family companions.
