Things to Ask Before Answering Should You Get The Pharaoh Hound Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Pharaoh Hound? Families should come to an agreement in advance who is to be in charge of walking feeding, bathing and cleaning up after the Pharaoh Hound.

If that requirement is too daunting, you might consider waiting until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Pharaoh Hound.
