Pharaoh Hound Information
This noble dog is one of the oldest domesticated canines in history, dating back to approximately 3000 B.C. His existence is well documented in ancient Egyptian art and hieroglyphics.
The Pharaoh Hound has the need for speed and is a powerful, fast animal with a unique, graceful stride. Given these characteristics, it’s no wonder the Pharaoh Hound is an excellent hunter and does well in dog shows.
For appearance, the Pharaoh Hound ranges in earthy colors that include tan, chestnut and red. When excited, which is often for this friendly and affectionate dog, his nose and ears turn a reddish color!
