Apparently some Afghan hound sources counted two dogs, Khelat and Kushki, as Afghan hounds.
They were nothing of the sort.
They were both dogs that we’d recognize as Central Asian ovtcharkas. No description of Kushki is given– other than the dog was creamy white.
But Khelat appears to be an ovtcharka with a twist– a shaggy, poodle-type coat.
These dogs were imported to England in the 1880′s, but a more Ovtcharka-looking dog named “Shere Ali” was exhibited at Crufts in 1879– right in the middle of the Second Afghan War.
