The Pharaoh Hound is a graceful, athletic sighthound. The muscles are lithe, never heavy. The head is wedge-shaped and chiseled.

The flat skull and muzzle are long and slim. The small eyes are amber or light brown. The ears are very large and stand erect. The nose is tan and speckled with pink.

The teeth should meet in a scissors bite. The jaw is powerful. The neck is fairly long and slightly arched. The brisket is deep and the abdomen moderately tucked up.

The whip-like tail is carried down, thick at the root, tapering to a point. The front legs are straight. Removal of the dewclaws is optional. The coat is short and glossy in red or tan, often with white markings.

A white tip on the tail is preferred. A white star on the chest, white on toes and/or a thin white line down the center of the face are permitted. Any white on the back of the dog is a disqualification.

Temperament: Playful, Affectionate, Intelligent, Trainable, Sociable, Active

Health Problems: This is a very healthy and hardy breed; but beware, the Pharaoh can be highly sensitive to insecticides and medicines.
