Pharaoh Hound Dog Breed Puppy Ads
AKA: Kelb-tal Fenek
Breed Group: Hound Group Height Male: 23-25 inches (59-63 cm.)
Breed Size: Large Height Female: 21-24 inches (53-61 cm.)
Breed Origin: Egypt Weight: 45-55 pounds (20-25 kg.)
The Pharaoh Hound's coat is short and glossy and ranges from rich tan to chestnut tan with white markings as follows: A white tip tail; white on the chest (the "Star"); white on the toes; and a slim white snip on the centre line of the face. His eyes are deep set and amber in colour thereby blending with the coat and giving him an expression of intelligence.

Graceful, elegant, and dignified, the Pharaoh Hound is an agile and energetic dog with plenty to offer to the right family or owner. These dogs often like to bark, and although this makes him an effective watchdog he may not be the right choice for those looking for a quiet life. The Pharaoh Hound does need a fair amount of exercise, but should only be allowed to run free in a properly secured and safe area if he is not on a leash, as he will chase most things that run. Although the Pharaoh Hound likes to play and exercise, he is also fond of his creature comforts and will make himself comfortable indoors. He is not a dog that likes to be overly cuddled, but he is an affectionate creature that enjoys the companionship and interaction.

The Pharaoh Hound gets along very well with children, and will always be ready to play and have some fun. He usually gets along well with other pets, but smaller pets may be in danger as he has very strong chasing instincts. He tends to be cautious yet polite and inquisitive when strangers are around. In order to minimize the risk of timidity, which can run in some lines, early socialization is recommended with the Pharaoh Hound. These dogs have excellent eyesight, as you would expect from a sighthound, and are also very intelligent with a fairly good learning rate. However, training can be a challenge and this breed is best suited to those with some experience of dog ownership.

The Pharaoh Hound has an incredibly long and rich history, originating from Egypt with roots that can be traced back to Ancient times. These dogs were popular amongst Egyptian rulers, and then went on to become popular in Malta. They were introduced in the UK in the 1920s and in the 1960s finally made it to America. The breed was registered with the AKC in 1983.
The Pharaoh Hound is a hardy breed and not prone to many of the problems commonly seen in other breeds. However, if you are considering a Pharaoh Hound puppy, or any breed, it is still very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. Breeding of any dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases.
