So you’re looking to adopt an Ibizan Hound, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Ibizans are lithe and leggy visitors from the dawn of civilization. Art history students will recognize the elongated head, with its large erect ears, as a familiar motif of ancient Egypt. The elegant, racy body stands 22.5 to 27.5 inches at the shoulder, with coat colors of solid red or white, or red and white patterns. The rosy-colored leathers of the nose, eye rims, and lips—along with amber or caramel eyes—perfectly complement the coat. The breed’s quiet grace is often described as deer-like. The Ibizan Hound is a lithe and leggy visitor from the dawn of civilization, bred as a rabbit courser on the rocky shores of Spain’s Balearic Islands. World-class sprinters and leapers, Ibizans need ample space to air out their engines.”
An Ibizan Hound typically ranges from 57.15cm to 69.85cm in height, and weighs from 20.41165665kg to 22.6796185kg.
