All about animals #1


I found this very interesting site about a Hungarian breed dog, the Agar. My neighbor had one just like this majestic animal.

This site describes this breed, and I quote:
"The Magyar Agár is a Hungarian sight hound of elegant yet rugged structure. While they bear some resemblance to their cousin the English Greyhound, there are a number of significant differences in conformation between the two breeds. Magyar Agárs are longer in body than they are tall, and have a heavier bone structure than Greyhounds. Their heads are more wedge-shaped, with substantial jaw muscles and shorter snouts, giving them a less refined appearance. They also have much thicker skin with a short, dense and smooth coat that is slightly longer during winter months. As such, they are very hardy dogs and can tolerate lower temperatures better than some of the other short-coated sight hounds. They have rose-shaped ears that are raised about half way and oval-shaped eyes with a bright and gentle looking expression. They weigh between 49 pounds (22 kg) and 68 pounds (31 kg) with a height between 25 inches (64 cm) and 27 inches (69 cm) at the withers. They come in a variety of colors."
