Carlotta Wolseley-Lahchiouach's import lines have been incorporated into the breeding program of Daruma Afghan Hounds, Switzerland. This is an extremely interesting kennel to study. Consider this pedigree

We have highlighted in white the Ghazni ancestors included in this pedigree.

***Also look at the ancestor, bottom of the pedigree (Alaf Shirin of Jagai), also highlighted in white. This line includes Daphne Gie's (UK) Afghanistan import line. Chipak Barqaki. See previous page for Chipak Barqak's pedigree

As I mentioned above, the Daruma kennel is extremely interesting. The breeders have blended some very influential German lines, including Von Katwiga, Von Der Irminsul, wth some modern USA lines such as Pahlavi and some earlier USA lines such as Ben Ghazi. Additionally Daruma breeding includes the final Turkuman bred line via Nuh Belae Turkuman Hennah, plus Carlotta Wolseley-Lahchiouach's Afghanistan import lines, and Daphne Gie's Afghanistan lines. Surely one of the most unique bloodlines in the world, one which preserves some essence of lines long since lost to the breed. We hope to add to this article in the near future and gain more knowledge and understanding on the Daruma kennel
