      I don't have one; as I understand they're rare outside of Malta.  But I do find it funny that these dogs are a fairly recent breed with no connections to ancient Egypt.  The dogs the pharaohs most likely owned were salukis.

      I have a Pharaoh Hound.  Have had him for over a year.   Got him as a pup of 8 weeks & he's now 16 months old.  Love him to pieces.  Having said that, they are not for everyone.  They require a lot of exercise and have a very strong prey drive, so cannot be let off leash unless in a safe, fenced in area.   Would not trade him for the world!

    lolololo - I thought your icon was a Pharaoh Hound until I went and looked them up in the Canadian Kennel Club - this one from thebestofbreeds.com is a beauty
    Very cute icon/avatar, though smile

    Never had one, but have looked longingly at a few pictures smile. They are gorgeous dogs, and from what I hear are very similar in temperament to the coonhounds I've always had.
