The Afghan hound is a regal breed dating back to the 19th century in Afghanistan. They have a long silky coat that does not mix well in areas that have a lot of grass stickers. The coat does have to be combed out almost daily to prevent matting (and pull out the grass stickers). Once the coat does mat up, it usually will have to be shaved off.
The AKC recognized the Breed in 1926 and you can learn more about the Afghan hound on their website, AKC.org/afghan
