Caravan Hound

Note: If you have this breed, or know   anyone who does, please send a good profile photograph of the Dog (without humans in the background). We shall publish it on this page with credits. You can send it either by e-mail or post.

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.
