The afghan is galgo running, hunting brave that seems to not know the fear. He never takes a step backwards when his adversary is potentially more fort; its victory is based on the rapidity, the cleverness and in the knowledge of the weak parts of the opposite. He is in addition unique galgo that owns innate aptitudes of shepherd. Many consider the great balance between their character and its aptitudes inexplicable. The hardness with the elegance, the hunting being with the pastoral activities of monitoring seems incompatible in a dog and keeps, which in the afghan is absolutely normal.

Galgo of Afghanistan, in spite of being an apparently cold animal, is an extraordinarily sensible dog and, for this reason, it cannot support to pass to background or any attitude that can make him think that it has been delayed. Although it is not constantly realising acts of demonstration of affection towards his master, at no moment it does without the bond of the friendship that it relates to him to the man.
