Just a curiosity really. Anyone know anything about this breed? How do they compare to other similar sight hounds? Visually they're just stunning and totally more my size than the others (except whippets).

They're closely related (from what I can tell) to Beezers and Pharaohs but they're small dogs, only in the 20 lb range. I was wondering if temperament was more like a beezer or a pharaoh...

I didn't really have anything constructive to add, lol. And now that you mention it, they do look like Pharoahs as well

Haha, yeah they're pretty rare, but I believe are actually FSS accepted by the AKC. SO they must exist over here. I love their look and size. I've thought they were stunning for years now.

I dunno. I've known about them at least 5-6 years now. I'm not sure where I heard of them but they intrigue me. They're also called the Sicilian hound.

Yeah they are AKC FSS:

American Kennel Club - List of FSS Breeds

Another intriguing breed to me is the Podenco Andaluz:

Podenco Andaluz

Anyone heard of that one? lol

And of course the portuguese podengo:

I don't know much beyond looks and them being in the same 'family' so to speak.
