Pharaoh Hound - Guide to Pharaoh Hounds

Description: The Pharaoh Hound is muscular and powerful yet elegant and graceful in appearance. These dogs have an ancient Egyptian history dating back possibly to 3000 B.C. making them one of the oldest domesticated dog breeds in the world. It is thought that long before the birth of Christ, Phoenician traders brought them to Malta, an island nation off the coast of Sicily, Italy in the Mediterranean Sea. Breeders in Malta were diligent in keeping the breed pure. Even today the Pharaoh Hound is free from many genetic diseases as a result of very responsible breeding.

Pharaoh Hounds have a keen sense of sight, sound and scent and were primarily used in teams to hunt rabbits in Malta and its neighboring island, Gozo. The first Pharaoh Hound was brought to the United States in 1967 by Ruth Taft Harper with the help of Pauline Black and her husband General Adam Black. The American Kennel Club recognized the registration for the Pharaoh Hound in 1983 and the breed was entered into Regular Classes in 1984.

Height: The height for male Pharaoh Hounds should be between 23 - 25 inches (58.4 - 63.5 cm) and for bitches between 21 - 24 inches (53.3 - 61 cm). AKC standard. The Pharaoh Hound is slightly longer in body than in height, but there should be an allover balance.

Weight: The weight for a Pharaoh Hound is between 45-55 pounds (20-25 kg).

Coat Type: The Pharaoh Hound's coat is short and glossy with a texture that can range from silky to harsh. The coat lies close and there is no feathering. Grooming is easy - occasional brushing and a bath only when necessary will help maintain the Pharaoh Hound's coat. The Pharaoh Hound sheds very little and has no odor.

Color: The color of the Pharaoh Hound's coat can vary from red to and tan including all shades of these two. According to the AKC Standard, these white markings are permissible - on the chest (White Star), toes and a slim white snip on center line of face.

Temperament : The Pharaoh Hound is intelligent, active and affectionate. He makes a great family pet and does well with children - which he is already accustomed to. If your Pharaoh Hound is not used to being around children, he should be properly introduced. Also, keep in mind that this breed is very sensitive regarding his eyes - do not cover or put your hands near them. The Pharaoh Hound is very alert and barks when something is out of the norm, making him a good watch dog. Although he can be wary of strangers, he is rarely aggressive. This breed does well with training which is done in a positive manner. Pharaoh Hounds can be sensitive, independent and stubborn. They do well with other dogs and animals when properly introduced, however, some claim he will still need to be supervised when around small pets. As an active breed, the Pharaoh Hound needs daily exercise such as long runs, walks and even sprinting. The Pharaoh Hound is a natural hunting dog, so caution must be exercised if he is not on a leash as h...
