SWIFTER THAN THE ARROW

SWIFTER THAN THE ARROW

The Egyptians were the first known civilisation to have formed a special bond with the dog.

Five thousand years ago they selected and bred hounds for the chase and as companions and for more than twenty-five centuries they kept the breed true. The result was the slender, prick-eared golden hounds familiar from a thousand tomb reliefs.

"Swifter than the Arrow" examines the evidence that hounds living today such as the Pharaoh Hound are directly descended from the Egyptian hound and offers a completely fresh insight into the development of mankind's remarkable bond with the domesticated dog.
