|The Afghans, Pathans, Mongols, Persians, and the Arabs brought
through the Khyber pass many hounds like the Afghan and the Saluki when they came into
India. The Caravan Hound probably owed its ancestry to these dogs. They were called so
because they used to travel along with the caravans from place to place. It is also said
that the Afghans were given lands to act as a buffer between Aurangazeb's Deccan kingdom
and the Maratha Empire. So the dogs are also found in the same area. They dogs
were usually bred selectively by the villagers to withstand the weather, hunt or for
qualities they appreciated rather than for colour and beauty. This breed is known to be
quite immune to many diseases and has plenty of stamina.
|The head is long and narrow and broad between the ears with a tapering
muzzle. The jaws are long and powerful. The nose is large and black in colour. The ears are
long and hang close to the skull. The eyes are dark hazel in colour , they large and oval
in shape. They are ever alert and keen. The neck is long clean and muscular and fits
well into the shoulders, which are well-laid back. The forelegs are long, straight and
well-boned. The dogs are 68-72 cms in height and the females are 64-68 cms tall.
The back is long, broad and well-muscled. The loins are wide and deep. The
chest is strong
and deep with well sprung ribs. The abdomen is tucked in. The hind quarters appear wide
and well-muscled. The tail is strong at the base, not too long, set low and carried in a
natural curve. It should never be carried over the back. The gait is high-footed flexing
all the four legs. The coat is fine and coarse. They are normally, fawn,
red, cream, black
or interspersed with white. Following are the URL,s sent to us by Mr.Neil
Trilokekar. Our thanks to him.
