The Afghan Hound is high-stationed, standing 24 to 29 inches (63-74 cm) in height and weighing 45 to 60 pounds (20-30 kg).
The high hipbones and unique small ring on the end of the tail are also characteristics of the breed.
The temperament of the typical Afghan Hound can be aloof and dignified, but happy and clownish when playing.
The breed has a relatively low "obedience intelligence"
Owners should not be surprised if their Afghan hounds sometimes choose to ignore commands.
Afghan hounds as a whole are a fairly long-lived breed, often living 13-14 years.
The breed was always thought to date back at least to the pre-Christian era, and recent discoveries by researchers studying ancient DNA have revealed that the Afghan Hound is in fact one of the most ancient dog breeds, dating back for many thousands of years. Its original native name, Tazi, betrays its connection to the very similar Tasy breed of Russia. The proximity of southern Russia and Afghanistan argue for a common origin for both breeds.
Initially, Afghan people refused to sell their national dog to outsiders; the breed was not seen in Europe and America until after the turn of the 20th century. AKC and CKC did not recognize the Afghan Hound until the 1930s.
On August 3, 2005, Korean scientist Hwang Woo-Suk announced that his team of researchers had become the first team to successfully clone a dog. The dog, an Afghan Hound, was named Snuppy. Later that year, a pattern of lies and fraud by Hwang Woo-Suk came to light, throwing in doubt all his claims.Snuppy, nonetheless, was a genuine clone, and thus the first cloned dog in history.
