Cani e gatti ❤️ rivista Dog Style 2 En

History The Pharaoh Hound is a breed known since the time of the Pharaohs, to which it owes its name due to the clear resemblance to the dogs represented in their tomb paintings. In contemporary times the first specimens were brought from Malta to Great Britain in 1920. Its original name, in fact, is Kelb Tal-Fenek which means "rabbit hound" in Maltese language: it was the traditional hunting companion of Maltese hunters. Today, the Pharaoh Dog is bred almost exclusively in England. Variously classified as belonging to the greyhound group, its aptitude for field work clearly classifies it as a hound, but according to the FCI it belongs to Group 5 - spitz and primitive type dogs. The breed is also known by the names Chien du Pharaoh and Pies Guinea Fowl. General Appearance Medium size, noble bearing, with clearly drawn lines. Elegant yet powerful. The movement of the Pharaoh Hound is fast, flexible, natural, quick, and harmonious; its head has a triangular shape, with a flattened, elongated, and oblique skull with a slightly longer snout. The breed has the unique characteristic of "blushing" when excited, with their nose and ears turning bright pink.
