Dog Magyar Agár

The Magyar Agár or Hungarian Greyhound is a breed of greyhound originating from Hungary. This greyhound type dog is known for its speed, agility and elegance.

The Hungarian Greyhound is a medium-sized dog, with a muscular and athletic body. Males generally measure between 65 and 70 cm at the shoulder, while females measure between 60 and 65 cm. The average weight generally varies between 25 and 35 kg.

Its short, fine coat has a soft, smooth texture. The most common coat colors are fawn, black, red and brindle, often with white markings. Its head is long and narrow, and its ears are set high and folded back. Its tail is long and thin, and it is usually carried curled on the back. The Magyar Agár has a sleek, muscular body, with a slender, streamlined silhouette. It has a straight back, a deep chest and long, well-muscled limbs. Its appearance is elegant and graceful.

The Hungarian Greyhound is known for its gentle, calm and affectionate temperament. He is loyal to his family and often seeks human contact. Although he is gentle at home, he can show great vigor and determination when racing or chasing. He is an intelligent and sensitive dog who can be reserved with strangers. Early socialization is therefore important to develop self-assurance and confidence towards strangers.

Like all greyhounds, the Hungarian Greyhound needs plenty of exercise and space to exercise. He enjoys long free runs where he can express his speed and grace. However, it is also adaptable to apartment living if it gets enough daily exercise.

The Magyar Agár is generally in good health, with no particular predisposition to specific health problems. However, like all large breeds, it can be prone to joint problems, including hip dysplasia.

The Hungarian Greyhound was bred for hunting furred game in Hungary. Its speed and agility make it an excellent running and chasing dog. Outside of hunting, he makes a loyal and loving companion for active families who can meet his needs for exercise and mental stimulation.
