Afghan Hounds

I was active in the breed in the 1960s and 1970s. I owe a lot to a wonderful little dog

called Azif. He was a combination of V.D.O.M. and Carloway breeding and the type that

I so admired. I quote from an article I wrote “Azif was small in stature but huge in spirit.  

He was a perfectly balanced little dog with huge feet, correct coat pattern, ring tail , short coupled and with typical head and outlook. He was wild and independent in spirit and could escape over the highest fencing. He cost me lots of money and anxiety but I still miss him…"
