Ibizan Hound

Ibizan Hound

Also known as Beezers, the Ibizan Hound originated in Ibiza, in Spain’s Balearic Islands where they were used to hunt rabbits. They are very athletic and require a lot of exercise. They could easily jump five or six feet from a standing position. Beezers are an affectionate, playful and friendly breed and they will chase prey at every opportunity. They can steal food whenever and wherever they have a chance, and keeping an Ibizan Hound at an appropriate weight is the best way to extend their life. The breed comes in two coat types: smooth and wiry.

  • Ibizan Hounds can inherit or develop different eye conditions, some of which may cause blindness if not treated right away, and most of which can be extremely painful.
