The Pharaoh hound is believed to date back to 4000 BC where it was used to hunt and chase small game. For many years, this breed was considered one of the oldest dog breeds. Recent DNA analysis reveals, however, that this breed is actually a recent construction, bred to resemble an older form. Despite this history, it is the country of Malta who is responsible for developing the breed to what we know it today.

Both a sight and scent hound, the Maltese used it for hunting rabbits as well as a guard dog.
