Ibizan Hound (Hound Group)

The Ibizan Hound is an elegant, agile, deer-like hound with large ears and amber eyes that give the breed an exotic look. Their coats are red, white or any combination of the two colors. They can have smooth coats or longer wiry coats with bushy moustaches. In the Ibizan’s native Spain, the breed is used in packs to hunt rabbits. The Ibizan is unequaled in high and broad jumping ability, which it uses to hunt in the rough terrain of its native land.

A Look Back

In ancient Egypt around 3400 BC there were depictions of curled tailed hounds very much of the type found in modern Ibizan Hounds. It is believed that sea-traders, perhaps the Phoenicians, carried these ancient dogs to various foreign lands such as Ibiza, an island off the coast of Spain. There, they were used to hunt rabbits to provide food for themselves and the island people.

Temperament

The Ibizan Hound is even-tempered, affectionate and loyal. Extremely versatile and trainable, he makes an excellent family pet, and is well suited to the breed ring, obedience, tracking and lure-coursing. He exhibits a keen, natural hunting instinct with much determination and stamina in the field. (AKC)
