Pharaoh Hound – The Playful Maltese Rabbit Dog

The following are some facts about malshi:

Maltese is a breed of dogs from Egypt. They were bred to hunt wild animals such as deer, boar, hare or even camels. They have been used since ancient times for hunting and guarding livestock.

Today they are still used in various forms of work including law enforcement, search and rescue (SAR), military training and other specialized jobs. There are approximately 15 million malsi in the world today.

In the past there was no official name given to them. They were called “maltese” because they resembled a small mountain goat. However, their original name was not “maltese”, but rather it was “egyptian”.

According to legend, these dogs were originally bred by the pharaohs as guard dogs for their royal family members. The dogs were very loyal and faithful towards their masters. Later, they were also used as guards for tombs and tombs were built in order to protect the dead bodies inside.

They are known for their friendly nature and love of people. They enjoy playing with children and play fetch with toys. They like to cuddle up next to their owners when sleeping.

These dogs are very affectionate toward each other and will often lick each others faces if they feel safe enough. However, they are not suited for homes with other pets.

These dogs are very independent and are used to working by themselves. They are natural hunters that thrive when in the wild or outside. They are very intelligent and can handle most climates.

The only fault in this breed is that most males will tend to be aggressive towards other males, even if they have been properly socialized.

The main types of hunting hounds are:

1. Sighthounds: – They have eyesight that is very keen and they rely on their excellent vision to track prey.

2. Scenthounds: – These dogs have a very strong sense of smell and they can track prey over long distances by following a scent trail.

3. Sight hounds: – These dogs have an excellent sense of vision and they rely on their eyesight to track their prey.

4. Bloodhounds: – These dogs are used to track escaped prisoners or missing people.

5. Beagles: – These hounds rely on their loud bark to track prey.

They mostly work in packs and are known for their sense of smell.

6. Coonhounds: – They have a good sense of smell and they are used to track racoons, and even humans.

7. Tomhawks: – These dogs are used mainly to hunt in packs.

They rely on their loud bark to startle prey so they can easily track and kill it.

These hounds are primarily used to hunt big animals such as deer, wild boar, hare and even bears and wolves. They have a keen sense of smell and can easily pick up the scent of prey over great distances. They also have endurance and amazing speed.

Despite their small size, they can outrun larger predators that hunt in groups such as wolves. They are mostly used for hunting because of these abilities.

Bull Terriers.

The bull terrier is a stocky breed with a muscular body and a broad head. The ears are dropped and the teeth are often shown when the dog is angry. The tail is usually curled and held low.

These dogs are good with children and are playful. They are protective over their owners and tend to be suspicious of strangers. These dogs are energetic and love to play games, especially fetch.

Bull terriers were originally bred in England by crossing the old English Terrier with an ancestor of the Manchester Terrier, the Black and Tan Terrier. It is thought that these dogs got their name from their reputation of taking on much larger animals such as bulls, though it is possible that they may have originally been bred to hunt bears. Today, they are mostly bred for companionship.

The bull terrier is a fairly new breed and was first shown in dog shows in the 1860s. They really came into their own during the early twentieth century when a race of dog called the “bull and terrier” became very popular among the lower classes in industrial towns. This type of dog was bred to be strong, fearless, and determined.

Some people wanted these dogs to be used for fighting and a “fighting” type dog was created. Over the years, the type of dog used for fighting became narrower and narrower until it was decided that only the bull terrier should be used, though it was never actually known to be used in a fight.

In the early twentieth century there were not many breeds of dog and many people appreciated the unique look of the bull terrier. It was also a popular pet among celebrities and royalty. These dogs are still popular today, though much of their “lower class” history has been forgotten.

Bull mastiff

Bullmastiffs are large, strong and powerful dogs that are calm and reliable making them good with children and families. They are protective over their home and owner, but will rarely become aggressive without a reason. Despite their size and strength they are not overly active dogs and are suited to living in an apartment as long as they get regular exercise.

They are generally good with other pets in a household, but they should be trained not to pick on smaller and weaker animals.

The Bullmastiff is a very powerful dog built up of strong muscles with a large broad head, wide jaws and a big flat face. These dogs have a lot of energy and need regular exercise, but despite their looks they are not hyperactive dogs and they calm down once they are mature. They also tend not to bark unnecessarily and are more on the quiet side.

These dogs were originally bred in England in the 1800s as a type of catch-all dog for hunting, protecting estates and individuals, as well as companionship. They were bred by crossing Old English Bulldogs with Old English Gamecocks and are related to the Mastiff family. The name “Bullmastiff” comes from their type of origins and breeding.

These dogs were very popular in England during the 1800s and were owned by members of the upper class. However, following the rise of the Bull Terrier as a pet among the middle class, the popularity of the Bullmastiff declined. During World War I they were used as guard dogs on trains and for carrying dispatches between trenches.

After the war, demand for these dogs declined again and they were nearly extinct by 1930. Fortunately, a few breeders kept these dogs going and today they are still bred and popular in England.

The Bullmastiff is currently recognised by the American Kennel Club and the United Kennel Club. They are included in the mastiff group.

Caucasian Shepherd

The Caucasian Ovcharka or the Caucasian Sheepdog (Russian: Kavkazskaya Ovcar) is a large breed of dog that is primitive in nature due to the fact that it has been isolated for so long. It is an independent worker, and will only obey commands if it deems them worth obeying. It is a large dog, and it has a powerful bite.

It should be handled carefully, especially by those unfamiliar with the breed (generally, this means anyone other than another owner). The dog varies in size, due to its crossbreeding, but it tends toward the larger side of things. It protects livestock without fail and will not back down from a fight. It is native to the Caucasus Mountains that lie between Europe and Asia.

Cats are domesticated animals that have been bred from the African Wildcat for the past 10,000 years or so. The historic relationship between humans and cats is a friendly one, with our furry feline friends helping to keep the rodent population under control at the first farms and villages. In many developing nations, cats still live wild and free, though they still have a friendly relationship with humans.

Domestic cats are smaller than their wild relatives and they can be as small as a bag of sugar, although most domestic cats (especially those bred for big cat shows) are much larger than this. They have streamlined bodies to allow them to move quickly and they can squeeze through very narrow gaps.

Cats have teeth that allow them to tear meat, but they do not have strong jaw muscles and so they tend to swallow their food without chewing it first. They can hear extremely high frequency sounds that are inaudible to humans and their eyes can detect the smallest movements at long distances.

One of the most popular cat breeds is the common house cat. These are found everywhere humans are found, both as pets and strays. These kitties come in a wide range of colors and patterns (and sometimes sizes!?)

Guinea Pigs

These rodents are domesticated cousins of the cavy, which is a wild South American rodent. They were first bred for food by South American Indians and they were brought to Europe by Spanish Conquistadors in the 16th century. They became very popular as pets when English sailors brought them back from South America in the 1700s.

In the wild, guinea pigs are social animals that live in groups called “gangs.” In the past, they were used in the same way that rats are used in laboratories today.

Guinea pigs are also called “Cavies” and they are very social furry little creatures that prefer the company of humans over their own kind. They enjoy being stroked and handled, but can sometimes hiss if they are frightened or hurt.

Guinea pigs like to live in tunnels, and they will often make burrows out of bedsheets or towels if they live with humans. They are vegetarians that eat carrots, potatoes, cabbage, and other vegetables.


Hamsters are small rodents that have become popular pets in recent years. They are from the Middle East, where they live in underground tunnels. Wild hamsters look very different from their domestic cousins and they have much thicker fur.

They are sometimes called “sand mice” because they have large bushy tails that allow them to float through the desert sands.

Hamsters eat vegetables, grains, and some types of fruit. They especially like sunflower seeds. Hamsters are nocturnal, so they tend to be more active at night.

They sleep during the day and that’s when you are most likely to see their little noses sticking out of their tunnels!

Hamsters are sometimes called “sand rats,” but this is a misnomer, as they are not true rats. Their closest relatives are the gerbils.


These cute little animals resemble small ba bies’ stuffed toys and that’s how they got their name. They are nocturnal, so you are most likely see a sleeping hedgehog than one that is awake. When they are sleeping, their little limbs are pulled in towards their body and their spines stand up to make them look a lot bigger than they actually are.

Hedgehogs were introduced into Great Britain by the Romans, who raised them for their meat and hides. They have a coat of sharp spines that cover their bodies for defense against predators. These spines are stiff hairs that point inward and they always grow back if they are injured.

Hedgehogs are nocturnal , so they sleep during the day and come out at night to eat insects, worms, slugs, and other small creatures. They have a very good sense of smell and their ears can pick up the slightest noises.

You can sometimes find hedgehogs in Great Britain’s gardens, but they are solitary animals and only meet up to breed. A female hedgehog will have between one and twelve babies at a time, but only half of these are likely to survive.


These incredible animals have been a part of human history for around 4,000 years, since they were first domesticated in the Indus River Valley. Before the invention of the wheel, they were used to pull carts and carry loads. Today, they are still used for transport in many poorer countries and they are also used for entertainment in the equestrian events of the Olympic Games.

There are many different types of horse in the world today. They are generally classified by their size or the way in which they grow up (the age at which they are fully grown). Types of horse include:

Ponies – These animals are smaller than horses and they generally mature more quickly. They are thought of as children’s horses and they are very good at navigating rough terrain, so they can often be found in mountainous areas. Types of pony include the Dartmoor Pony, Shetland Pony, and Connemara Pony.

Draft Horses – These are the tallest types of horse, but they are also the calmest and easiest to train. They are used for farming and haul heavy loads short distances. Types of draft horse include the Belgian and Clydesdale.

Racehorses – These are the fastest horses and are bred for racing. They have the highest risk of injury of all horse types and racing is a notoriously cruel industry with many horses dying before the age of six. Types of racehorse include the Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse.

Sport Horses – These types of horse have been bred for activities other than racing, such as jumping and dressage. Types include the Hanoverian and Warmblood.

Warhorses – These horses were bred for battle and were crossbreeds of various breeds. They were originally used by the Celts and then by the Vikings and Normans in their battles. The best warhorses are believed to have come from the area that is now Normandy in France.

Mules – These are the offspring of a male donkey and a female horse and they are generally used for transporting goods up mountains, because they are stronger and more sure-footed than either of their parents.

Horses are often given names that begin with the same letter as their gender (male horses are usually named after war heroes or American Presidents, while female horses are usually named after flowers or feminine words).

Many children love horses and one of the best things about owning one is buying riding equipment and clothes. You can buy everything from brushes and boots to saddle cloths and stirrups.

If you are a parent thinking of buying your child a horse, you might want to think about whether you have the space and financial resources to look after one. They also take a good deal of time and patience to care for.

Horses are often thought of as gentle giants, but they can be unpredictable and even dangerous if threatened. In 2012, there were three horse-related deaths in Great Britain alone. There are also some religions that forbid the ownership of horses, including Jainism and Buddhism.

Horses have been used in warfare for centuries and they feature heavily in mythology. In the ancient Indian epic poem, the Mahabharata, the hero Bhima fought a battle wearing an iron horse-head mask, giving rise to the idiom “battering a person with news like Bhima battered a horse-head”.

A number of other creatures are also called horses. The Common Rabbit or Hare is often called a Bunny Horse and is a favourite food of horses. The Thoroughbred Horse from which many of today’s racehorses are bred was originally known as the English Horse.

Finally, an archaic name for the Devil was Old Horse.
