The powerful, quick Pharaoh Hound is a striking, versatile dog originally bred to hunt rabbit by sight and scent. He is distinguished by a chiseled, wedge-shaped head with large, erect ears on a well-muscled body. Friendly and affectionate with his human companions, the Pharaoh Hound retains his playfulness throughout his life. Daily fenced or leashed exercise is vital for this active, athletic breed.
