Magyar Agár is also called a Hungarian Greyhound. It is a type of sighthound originating in Hungary.
It is used for hunting and coursing, also being kept as a companion.
The Magyar Agár is a sighthound of elegant stature, with a short and smooth coat that is slightly longer during winter months. They have button shaped ears that are raised about half way and eyes are oval in shape with a bright and gentle looking expression. They are similar in build to that of the Greyhound. They weigh about 49-68 lbs and are 25-27 inches at the shoulders. They come in a variety of colors.
This breed is affectionate and docile. They are highly unlikely to ever bite or be snippy with people. They are usually well behaved around children and also with other dogs. They are somewhat reserved but should not be overly shy. They are intelligent and faithful. They are an excellent coursing dog, and are still employed for such purposes in Hungary.
These dogs accompanied the Magyars to present-day Hungary and Romania in the 900s. They are not well known outside of Hungary.
The Magyar Agár has an average life span of 12-14 years.
