Need to know Afghan Hound
Tall and elegant with graceful long necks, these dignified dogs are loyal and gentle. To keep their coat long and shiny, it should only be brushed during bath times- using a specialist conditioner will keep it looking super smoothe. Originally bred for hunting hares and gazelles, their hunting instinct remains strong and they have high energy levels so a variety of toys -particularly throw toys- help to tire them out and keep them entertained.
