The Pharaoh Hound is an ancient breed that’s changed little since his development more than 5,000 years ago. He was the dog of kings and may have hunted gazelles with pharaohs, hence his name.

This loyal hunting companion later made his way to Malta, where he’s now the national dog. Full Pharaoh Hound profile on
