This ancient breed may not be as fast as the Greyhound, but he sure comes close. The Afghan Hound can reach a whopping 40 miles per hour – about as fast as a racehorse! But speed isn’t all he has.

This breed is an all-around athlete.

With higher and wider hip bones as compared to other breeds, he’s also very agile. Meaning he can make sharp and sudden turns quite gracefully.

So you’d better watch out. This quick, loyal canine can come dashing into your heart without much notice.
