The Pharaoh Hound originated in ancient Egypt and is a dog of medium size. It was bred primarily to hunt gazelle and other small game. It is no coincidence that the Pharaoh Hound's likeness in Egyptian art so strongly resembles the Egyptian jackal god, Anubis, the Watchdog of the Dead, in fact the Pharaoh Hound is the oldest domesticated dog in written records, dating back to before 3,000 B.C.
