This is a brilliant commercial with a beautiful Afghan. The video begins with someone on a bicycle delivering newspapers. Dogs come out from their homes to pick up the paper. All of a sudden, a door opens, and out comes this gorgeous Afghan. All the dogs turn their heads and stare at her beauty. A German Shepherd dropped his jaw and let go of his newspaper. The Afghan shakes her lovely long silky hair as a model would. Then the advertisement. Brilliant!
Characteristics of an Afghan
Afghans have long been known for their elegant beauty. She is not all looks. That thick flowy coat protects her from the cold climate of the mountainous regions where she originally came from, according to the American Kennel Club. And even though her long hair covers them, her paws have very huge pads that act as shock absorbers. Again, to protect her paws from the rough terrain. This beauty is agile and powerful–qualities of a hunter.
Those who own an Afghan testify to their loyalty and endearing qualities. However, this special dog is not for just anyone. She has an independent nature, so if you want to train her, just know who you are dealing with. And that beautiful coat of hair means you’re going to spend a lot of time grooming her. Since she was a hunter, she has a high prey drive. That means she’ll chase after what she perceives as a prey unless you have a securely fenced yard. And look at those legs. She needs to run. Do you have the time required to make sure her exercise needs are met? Here’s an interesting tidbit. Pablo Picasso had an Afghan hound. Picasso’s 1962’s painting “Femme Au Chien” features an Afghan. The painting was sold in 2012 for more than 10 million dollars. You can read more about the Afghan here.
