The Pharaoh Hound's appearance is of grace, power, and speed. It is a medium-sized dog of noble bearing with hard clean-cut lines.

Short History:

Once ruled Egypt... oh wait - those were Pharoahs, not Pharoah Hounds. Never mind. King Mutt (short for "Muttenkamen") is perhaps the most well-known Pharoah Hound.
