IBIZAN HOUND



The Ibizan Hound is named for the island of Ibiza off the coast of Spain. Often noted for its deer-like elegance, this graceful breed was a hunting companion to the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt before being brought to Ibiza by Phoenician traders. Classified as a sighthound whose primary quarry is rabbit, Ibizans are versatile hunters, utilizing hearing, sight and scent. This medium-sized hound is known for its athleticism and agility which includes a unique ability to jump six feet into the air from a standstill. Its admirers describe its temperament as fun loving, affectionate and loyal.
