So you’re looking to adopt an Pharaoh Hound, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Pharaohs are sleek, aerodynamic coursing hounds bred for high-speed pursuit on rocky terrain. Among their several distinguishing traits are a tight tan coat with matching leather on the nose, ears, and eye rims; ravishing amber eyes; a white-tipped tail; the ability to smile; and a unique way of blushing when happy or excited (“His face glows like a god,” wrote an admirer some 3,000 years ago). These elegant visitors from antiquity posses the speed and graceful movement of all coursers descended from Bronze Age hounds. The Pharaoh Hound, ancient “Blushing Dog” of Malta, is an elegant but rugged sprinting hound bred to course small game over punishing terrain. Quick and tenacious on scent, these friendly, affectionate hounds settle down nicely at home.”
An Pharaoh Hound typically ranges from 53.34cm to 63.5cm in height, and weighs from 20.41165665kg to 24.947580350000003kg.
