"The king of dogs" is the way American Kennel club describes this dog, "dignity and aloofness...proudly carried head, eyes gazing into the distance as if in memory of ages... More > past."

It is believed that the afghan hound is one of the oldest breeds known to man. Its origin is thought to come from a dog that not only produced the Afghan but another breed that comes from Russia, making them have the same point of origin.
