Pharaoh Hound

Pharaoh Hound


Height: 21-25 inches

Weight: 45-55 lbs.

Life Span: 12-14 yrs.

Breed Group: Sight Hounds

Overview
Pharaoh hounds want to please their owners and are very receptive to obedience training, which should begin early. They can be timid if not socialized with people, children, and other animals at an early age.

They are wonderful additions to families that can meet their needs for space, exercise, play, and interaction. Pharaoh hounds can only be left off-leash in secured areas because they will chase small animals. They can live with cats, however, if exposed to them when young.

Appearance
The pharaoh hound's coat is short and glossy, ranging from fine and close to slightly harsh with no feathering. The color varies from shades of tan to chestnut; white may appear on the chest (called a star), toes, and tip of the tail, and there may also be a slim white snip on the center line of the face. The dog's nose blushes when it gets excited.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Pharaoh hounds only need to be brushed once a week. These energetic dogs need a lot of exercise, space, and owner interaction.

Origins
The pharaoh hound was brought to the Mediterranean islands of Malta and Gozo from the Middle East by Phoenician traders over 2,000 years ago. The pharaoh hound resembles depictions of the ancient Egyptian dog-god, Anubis.

Breed-related health concerns: cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal disorders.
