|Dignity, beauty and grace describe the Afghan Hound, a native sighthound of Afghanistan,
whose near-human expression, intelligence and intensity have fascinated mankind for
centuries. This wholly remarkable dog is graced with elegance, yet designed for hunting in the
desert; marked with characteristic aloofness, yet affectionate with his own people; and blessed
with a free spirit and independent thought, yet trainable and obedient. The Afghan Hound
today has evolved into a fashionable home companion and a flashy, superlative show dog.
Trace the origins of our modern Afghan Hound from the deserts of Asia to homes and show
rings in North America; the history chapter includes a special section about the breeds
development in the US, written by Afghan expert Betty Stites. The author discusses the breeds
characteristics and standard as well as puppy selection and care, house-training and obedience.
A thorough chapter on everyday care details the grooming, exercise and conditioning of this
long-coated wonder hound. Owners can rely on a thoroughly up-to-date chapter on health
care written by Dr. Lowell Ackerman, one of the country's most respected veterinarians and
canine authors. Illustrated with over 135 color photographs, this Special Limited Edition
promises to be a reliable and informative volume for all Afghan Hound owners.
