Ibizan Hound Dog
"The Three-Way Hunter"

Ibizan is pronounced "E-beeth-an"
The Ibizan Hound is undoubtedly one of the oldest
breeds.   The Ibizan bears an unmistakable resemblance to
drawings,  paintings and  statues,  dating  back as  early as
3000 B.C., of the Egyptian god Anubis, the watchdog of the
dead.   In 1922, a full-size sculpture of Anubis was located
in Tutankhamen's tomb, and it was a precise image of the
Ibizan Hound of today.   Historians believe that either the
Phoenician sailing traders, in the 8th century B.C. or the
Carthaginian invaders in the 6th century B.C. brought
the dog to the island of Ibiza, off the coast of Spain,
from which it derives its name.

The Ibizan is a large dog breed, elegant, lithe and
racy with very highly developed sight, scent and hearing,
a three way hunter,  whose quarry nowadays, is the rabbit,
and hare.   Ibizans come in two types of coats, the short, or
smooth coat, and the wire coat.   The wire-haired, often has
a bountiful moustache.   The Ibizan Hound has a very even
temperament, affectionate and loyal, extremely versatile.
Ibizans make excellent family dogs and are very good
with children.   An Ibizan hound puppy is trainable,
loving, very cute, inquisitive and merry.
