Kelb tal-Fenek - National Hound of Malta
Welcome to our Website!

Kelb tal-Fenek, the National Hound of Malta

The Kelb tal-Fenek is the traditional hunting companion of the Maltese Farmers. It is known world wide by the misleading name Pharaoh Hound. There is no scientifically founded proof for this romancing, artificial term. We anticipate that a loss of the Kelb tal-Fenek's genuine character as an indigenous Maltese breed through the perpetuation of the 'Egyptian legend' is a permanent threat.

With our website we would like to present the facts behind the Kelb tal-Fenek. We kindly invite you to learn more about the origin of this rare and loveable breed.

We invite you to discover the Kelb tal-Fenek, Malta's living heritage!
