Afghan Hound

Description:

           The Afghan Hound is considered an aristocratic sighthound. Tall and slender with a long, narrow, refined head, silky topknot and powerful jaws. The back part of the head and skull is quite prominent. The muzzle is slightly convex. The nose is black. The Afgan has little or no stop that is the transition area from backskull to muzzle. The teeth  meet in a level or scissors bite. The dark eyes are almond shaped. The ears lie flat to the head. The neck is long and strong.  The front legs are strong and straight and the feet are large and covered with long hair. The tail has a curl or ring at the tip.. The long, rich, silky coat is most often the color of sand with a darker face and ear fringes, though all colors are permitted. White markings, however, are discouraged.
