MBIS SBIS GCHS CHARTEROAK TRAXX OF Grandeur
THE NATION’S NUMBER ONE HOUND * AND AMONG THE TOP FOUR OF ALL BREEDS * Gait When running free, the Afghan Hound moves at a gallop, showing great elasticity and spring in his smooth, powerful stride. When on a loose lead, the Afghan can trot at a fast pace; stepping along, he has the appearance of placing the hind feet directly in the foot prints of the front feet, both thrown straight ahead. Moving with head and tail high, the whole appearance of the Afghan Hound is one of great style and beauty. Body The back line appearing practically level from the shoulders to the loin. Strong and powerful loin and slightly arched, falling away toward the stern, with the hipbones very pronounced; well ribbed and tucked up in flanks. The height at the shoulders equals the distance from the chest to the buttocks; the brisket well let down, and of medium width.
Finding these elements in a balanced, square form without extremes is to be prized in the Afghan Hound. His perfect temperament: “aloof and dignified, yet gay” is a hallmark of the Grandeur Line.
