Ibizan Hound - Guide to Ibizan Hounds

Description: Ibizan Hounds are medium-sized hunting dogs which are elegant, agile, and deer-like in appearance. The hard textured coat which is either a short or wire type has various colors of red and white - solid or in combination. Ibizan Hounds have large, upright ears which are unique to this breed. These athletic dogs were used to hunt rabbit and other small game by sight, sound and / or scent.

Ibizan Hounds are considered by most experts to be an ancient dog with a history dating back to around 3400 B.C. Numerous artifacts uncovered in the tombs of Egyptian Pharaohs closely resemble the Ibizan Hound. In addition, a life size statue of Anubis also known as "The Watchdog of the Dead", was discovered in 1922 at the entrance of King Tut's tomb. This statue is an exact match to today's Ibizan Hound.

It is believed Ibizan Hounds made their way to Ibiza - an island from which the breed takes its name - off the coast of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea. Ibiza was discovered by Phoenicians in the 8th or 9th century B.C.

Ibizan Hounds were imported to the United States by Colonel and Mrs. Consuelo Seoane in 1956 and the breed was recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1979.

"The Ibizan Hound Club of The United States is the official AKC parent breed club for the Ibizan Hound. The Club's roots can be traced back to the mid-1970's organization, Ibizan Hound Fanciers and Exhibitors of the U.S. Today ICHUS consists of members throughout the world and is dedicated to promoting the qualities and attributes of the Ibizan Hound." ~ Source: IHCUS
