That's it..........Pharoh. I knew they were called something like that (I was thinking Sphinx!). I've heard and seen pictures, but I've never seen them 'live'. What gorgeous dogs - what are they like in character?

Karen, They are the comedians of the dog world, very active, can be vocal, good diggers and can take off vertically like a harrier jump jet. You need a garden with a 6 foot wall with trees or shrubs planted in front to stop them running up and over. They can run very fast and have good stamina so most owners don't let them off lead. They also develop very strong natural hunting instincts as they mature and want to chase cats and small creatures. In Malta, where they are the national dog, they are known as Kelb Tal Fenek which means Rabbit dog or hound and are kept by farmers for that purpose. My user name - the 2 is my kennel name and if you Google it you'll find my dog website.

Thank you. They do look to have the musculature for fast running. They are very beautiful dogs!
