Afghan Hound

The Western world did not discover the Afghan hound from Afghanistan until the late 19th century, when it was brought to Europe by British soldiers returning from Indian-Afghan border wars.

Pablo Picasso had an Afghan hound called Kasbec.

The Afghan Hound was introduced to London from its native Afghanistan in 1907. It was originally given the name Afghan Greyhound.

The average Afghan hound can reach speeds of up to 40 mph—about as fast as a purebred racehorse.
