History & Job

Origin: Spain

Year Recognized: 1978

Breed History & Job Description: Ibiza is one of the Balearic Islands, off Spain’s Mediterranean coast. About 3,000 years ago, Phoenician traders first brought Egyptian hounds to the rocky island. Islanders used packs of these hounds as rabbit hunters. Food was scarce on rugged Ibiza. For hounds and hunter, chasing rabbits wasn’t sport—it was more likely a matter of eating or going hungry. These many centuries later, Ibizans are still tenacious coursers blessed with blazing speed.
