Afghan Hound Times
(Afghan Hound Database and Breed Information Exchange)
Moroo was born in 1883 and was owned by Major Mackenzie. "Moroo" was exhibited in 1908. Moroo came from Balk (Balkh?) in Afghanistan as did another import (Shahzada) mentioned in the early timeline pages. Both were presented by Mrs Whitbread to the British Museum upon their death.
1/24/2012 - We have recently obtained another photo of Shahzada and Moroo, taken at the British Museum by Murray Anderson (NZ - The "Travelling Tazi"). This photo is taken from a different (front) angle so gives a new view of these two hounds.
