Ibizan Hound Dog

The Ibizan Hound is also called Podenco Ibicenco. The body is fine-boned and slender. The head is long and narrow with a long muzzle that tapers to a point, giving the appearance of a cone. It has a very small stop. The nose is a rosy flesh color. The teeth meet in a scissors bite. The small eyes are a clear amber to caramel in color. The erect ears are large and pointed. The neck is long, slender and slightly arched. The back is level and straight. The chest is long and deep. The front legs are straight. Dewclaws may be removed. There are three varieties of Ibizan: smooth-haired, longhaired and wirehaired. The most common is the smooth-haired and the longhaired is very rare. The wirehaired has a longer coat of rough hair that is softer textured than the other two varieties. Colors are white and red, white and tan, or solid white or red.

Temperament

The Ibizan Hounds, sometimes called “Beezers” by their fanciers, are quiet, clean, playful and polite. Good with children, gentle, sensible and sensitive. Protective and somewhat independent, they will hold back watchfully with strangers. Once they decide the stranger means no harm, they will relax very quickly. Be careful with small pets such as rabbits, cats and rodents; the Ibizan Hound is bred to hunt these creatures. Cats that are raised with the Ibizan Hound will fit in just fine as part of the “family pack,” but it will chase and possibly kill a cat it does not know. As with all breeds, the Ibizan Hound should be well socialized with other dogs, other animals, adults and children. Beezers are pack animals by nature, so introducing a puppy to the household is easy. An Ibizan thinks its humans are its pack, so any addition (human visitor or new baby) must be introduced slowly. When introducing an adult dog, be sure to take both dogs together on a pack walk, making both dogs heel on the walk before bringing the new dog home.
