Knowns as the national dog of Malta, the Pharaoh Hound is a medium-sized breed that was originally used for hunting hares. The Pharaoh Hound is very quick on its feet, with a slender body and a graceful gait. Its smooth coat of short hair is typically a solid tan or chestnut color. A defining characteristic of the Pharaoh Hound is its ability to “blush”; its nose and ears take on a red hue when it is excited.
