    a Pharaoh Hound or know someone who owns one? I am very curious in learning more about this breed and to see if this breed would be a good match with the temperment of my dog, Ox. I love the way this breed looks look, reminds me of the egyptian god, Anubis.

    I've met one but he was deaf and it was only a quick pet, LOL.

    He was cute and friendly though :).

    I've met some at shows- no pics though, sorry. I'm more partial to the Beezers though personally. ;)

    Pharaohs sure can bark!

    There's one that lives on the other side of town. They are very happy with him. To me he seems a little aloof and dignified. I like my dogs to be a little silly.

    That's why I like the beezers- they're more of clowns. Pharaohs are very dignified and a bit more dog aggressive. They seem a lot less concerned about people to me. I know an owner on another forum that'd be more than happy to talk to you I'm sure. He's on a pharaoh forum, I dunno the address. If you pm me I can point you to him.

    i've looked up some stuff on them a few times because i do have a bit of an interest in them.

    they are the oldest domesic dog known in history. i find them very regal looking. and they are a sighthound so no offleash without a good fence. their not your typical velcro dog but will adore their owner. says their brave and loyal and a great companion. likes kids, not so big into strangers,


    its a very healthy breed but can be rather sensitive to medicines or insecticides,

    I love Pharoahs too. A guy in my neighborhood owns one but I've never met him.

    If you have the chance, go to a dog show.. you'll usually find a few there and get to talk to owners.

    I've heard they are very cat-like in personality.
