The Ibizan Hounds’ clean-cut lines, large prick ears, and light pigment give it a unique appearance. A hunting dog whose quarry is primarily rabbits, this ancient Hound was bred for thousands of years with the function being of prime importance. Lithe and racy, the Ibizan possesses a deerlike elegance combined with the power of a hunter. Strong, without appearing heavily muscled, the Ibizan is a hound of moderation. Except for the ears, he should not seem extreme or exaggerated. The Ibizan Hound is even-tempered, affectionate, and loyal. Extraordinarily versatile and trainable, he makes an excellent family pet.
