The Egyptian Pharaoh Hound was traditionally used as a companion for hunters from Malta.
Some scientists say there is no DNA evidence for the breed being related to Egyptian dogs,
others claim the breed is related to ancient Egyptian dogs with a lineage back to 3,000 BC.
Pharaoh Hounds are graceful, powerful, and fast. They make pleasant companions who can be
peaceful indoors yet loves to play given an opportunity.
This breed has a unique ability - they blush when excited. The nose and ears get a rosy hue.
Pharaoh Hounds are generally healthy and need little grooming. As their coat is short and thin
they need to live indoors with soft bedding and warmth.
