The Ibizan Hound is a dog breed that is native to the island of Ibiza, off the coast of Spain. The breed is thought to be descended from the Egyptian Pharaoh Hound, and was brought to Ibiza by Phoenician traders. The Ibizan Hound was used for hunting rabbits and hares on the island, and was almost extinct by the 1970s. However, a few breeders in the United States began importing the dogs and breeding them, and the breed has since become popular in both America and Europe. The Ibizan Hound is recognized by both the American Kennel Club and the United Kennel Club.

The Ibizan Hound is a slender, elegant dog with long legs and a short, fine coat. The coat can be either red or white, or a combination of both colors. The breed is known for its large ears, which are used to help it locate prey when hunting. The Ibizan Hound is an intelligent breed that is easy to train. However, they can also be independent and stubborn, and are not recommended for first-time dog owners.
