The Pharaoh Hound is the National dog of Malta and is quite unique. I am helping a friend who does not use or have consistent access to the internet. Pharaoh as he is called is a regal looking dog that would make a wonderful companion or hunting dog. He responds to commands. His only vice is chasing cats and his current owner lives in a rural setting where his cats help contain the pack rats that destroy his farm equipment and other vehicles. I don't know how well he does with chickens but I can find out. For more information on the breed please look up the breed name on the internet. Or you may contact his owner direct on 580-743-6426 who lives near Antlers, OK. He cannot deliver the dog.
