Has anyone owned an Afghan Hound?

My parents owned them when I was younger and I loved them. I am going to look at one this week and want to know what to look for in a puppy. I want a sweet family dog and I know sometimes they can be a standoffish. Anyway, any advice would be great!

  • I haven't, but they sure are gorgeous! I would love to own one but have no desire to deal with the necessary grooming. Good luck.

  • I had an Afghan mix... she was 1/2 Lab 1/2 Afghan and was wonderful.. tragically, we had to put her to sleep 2 years ago.
    I love Afghans and they are my "dream" breed, but dh detests them and thinks that they are ugly. (blows raspberry in his direction)
    As a breed, yes they can be very standoffish..they have the diva mentality that they are royalty. LOL They are wonderful with children and can be very loving when it strikes their fancy.
