The Afghan Hound is a tall, slender dog that has a long, narrow and refined head. The back part of the head and skull is quite prominent. The muzzle is slightly convex and the nose is black. The Afgan has little or no stop, which is the transition area from back of the skull to the muzzle. The teeth meet in a level or scissor bite. The dark eyes are almond shaped and the ears lie flat on the head. This breed is considered an aristocratic sighthound.

The Afghan Hound is one of the oldest dog breeds originating around Russia and Afghanistan and introduced into Great Britain in 1920. The beauty and elegance of this breed made it a popular show dog and pet. Their distinctive look also makes them popular characters for animated movies, for example, movies such as Bolt, 101 Dalmatians and Lady and the Tramp.

The Afghan Hound's temperament is courageous, dignified, spirited, very sweet, loyal, affectionate and sensitive. They have a low dominance level and can sometimes be aloof but they socialize well. The Afghan has been described as "a king of dogs" for their noble, majestic and elegant nature. They tend to be suspicious of those they do not know, but not hostile. Although tough, they will pine if they are deprived of proper and gentle leadership. These dogs do best with older, considerate children who understand how to be a gentle pack leader.

The height of an Afghan Hound is 27 - 29 inches and slightly less for females and they weigh from 57 to 75 pounds (26 – 34 kg). They are generally healthy dogs but they can get cancer, kidney problems and other health issues.

An extremely fast and agile runner, the Afghan is a sighthound dog breed, which means that they hunt by sight. This breed was used as a sheepdog and as a hunter for many types of game including deer, wild goats, snow leopards and wolves. They were also used by shepherds as herders and watchdogs. Their thick coat protects them from extreme temperatures. In Europe and America, they have become a luxurious pet and show dog because of their aristocratic beauty. Some of the Afghan's talents include hunting, sighting, tracking, herding, watchdog, racing, and lure coursing.
