The Caravan Hound is a breed of dog that was once popular in the Middle East and North Africa. The breed is thought to have originated in Egypt, and was used by the nomadic Bedouin people to help them travel across the desert. The Caravan Hound is a large, powerful dog that can withstand extreme heat and long journeys. However, the breed nearly became extinct in the 20th century due to a lack of interest from breeders. In recent years, there has been a resurgence in popularity for the Caravan Hound, with many people now keeping them as pets. The breed is still relatively rare, but its numbers are slowly increasing.

The Caravan Hound is a descendant of the African Saluki, which is thought to be one of the oldest breeds of domesticated dogs. The Saluki was brought to Egypt by traders, and was then adopted by the Bedouin people. The Caravan Hound shares many physical characteristics with the Saluki, including its long legs and slender body. However, it is slightly smaller than its ancestor, and has a shorter coat. The Caravan Hound is recognized as a distinct breed by several kennel clubs, including the Kennel Club of England and the American Kennel Club.
