One of the most glamorous of dog breeds the Afghan has strength, dignity and a most aloof expression. A natural chaser as he is a hunter, training for recall is not easy, but he is loving and faithful towards his owner.
The silky coat is long, fine over the ribs, fore and hind quarters, legs and flanks. In mature dogs the hair is short and close from the shoulder along the black to the base of the tail. The face hair is short.
All colours are acceptable
