History

The Ibizan Hound originated on the Balearic island of Ibiza, off Spain’s Mediterranean coast. Egyptian hounds were brought there by Phoenician traders about 3,000 years ago where they were used to hunt rabbits in packs. The terrain was rough and the food was scarce, sculpting the Ibizan Hound into a tough and patient breed.
