“..after you get your first Afghan you either give it away very soon or you become totally addicted”
That about sums up an Afghan Hound – you either love them or you don’t. Seldom will you find a more passionate group of dog owners than ones who love Afghan Hounds.
You will find Afghan Hound owners protective of their breed, not just because there are only a few hunderd registered annually in the United States but also history plays a part (see ‘All About Afghans’ for more information on history.)
It may seem like they are discouraging you from owning one, but it’s more about protecting their breed and ensuring the placement is successful and the dog will have a loving and caring forever home.
