Podenco faraónico Pharaoh hound es una raza de perro con el linaje más antiguo de todas las que existen en el presente. Es un perro de tamaño mediano y admirable disposición.

Actualmente se le está usando como perro de terapia en personas con dificultades físicas o mentales.

This dog has a great ability to “synchronize” its temperament with that of its owner, that is, it usually imitates it.

En el antiguo Egipto se les documenta desde el cuarto milenio a.c., pero en el noreste de África se le documenta dos milenios antes, lo cual le hace el linaje de perros más antiguo conocido. Sin embargo, el podenco faraónico moderno procede de la Isla de Malta, en el Mediterráneo, donde posiblemente fue llevado por los fenicios.

Although modern Pharaoh Dogs have not enjoyed the same celebrity, those of Pharaonic Egypt were represented with their royal owners in works of art that decorated their tombs and palaces, representations that have been reproduced all over the world, and that make this dog be instantly recognizable despite its rare status.

It is for the latter that it is the Maltese national breed and is known in Maltese as Kelb-tal Fenek (rabbit dog).

It is a haughty and thin dog, it has a triangular head, with amber or dark brown eyes, wearing long, erect and stiff ears.

On the other hand, being a breed accustomed to hot weather, it may not take very well to live in cold places. Of course, you should never sleep in the open, as you could catch a cold.

Its price can be up to 6,000 euros
