Pharaoh Hound

Although the Pharaoh Hound expanded its origins in ancient Egypt, it was first brought into Egypt by the Phoenician merchants when they settled on the Mediterranean islands of Malta and Gozo while plying their trade of selling exotic spices. On Malta and Gozo, the breed has been preserved and is known to have existed for about 5,000 years. Remarkably, the physical features of today’s Pharaoh Hound are no different to those depicted in the tombs of ancient Egypt.
