Their long silky coat is represented by black, cream, silver or some other exotic color. Afghans are famous for the beauty and elegance of their appearance in combination with amazing speed qualities.History of the breed: It is believed that the ancestors of the breed more than 7 thousand years ago lived in mountainous and desert areas, located on the territory of modern Afghanistan. Representatives of the nobility did not imagine hunting without the participation of these amazing creatures. Hunting was conducted on snow leopards, wolves, deer, gazelles and other animals. Thanks to agility, endurance, and swift running, the Afghans almost always overtook their prey.

Today, individuals of this breed, represented by three varieties (short-haired, with hair on ears and paws, and long-haired), excellently manifest themselves as domestic companions. The average life expectancy of Afghans is about 12-14 years.
