the Hungarian Sighthound
A short summary: A Hungarian Sighthound is already known in the 8th century.
It was not alone a privilege of nobility to hunt with dogs but also the
common man and the nomadic Hungarians appreciated the help of a hound.
The Magyar Agar is a fast and enthusiastic Sighthound with lots of endurance. He resembles the early track Greyhound.
