They're pretty obedient and with consistent training they are one of the few hounds that will return on command. They have an affectionate character although can be a headache for other small pets and wildlife because of their hunting nature. They love to have company, especially from humans.
A medium sized hound, the Breed Standards say dogs should stand at between 56-63 cms and bitches 53-61 cms.
The Pharaoh Hound is a relatively healthy breed. There were cases of them suffering from Patella Luxation in the UK, although no cases have been recorded for several years now. They are long-livers, generally surviving between 12 and 14 years.
A very easy dog to look after.
Remember! All breed profiles are general and every dog is an individual.
