The ibizan hound is cunning, agile and a great hunter, a very noble dog, with a contour elegant, beautiful line and a well-defined, and its light pigmentation and large ears and stiff which give it a unique look. It is, above all, a hunting dog that is also known for his great abilities as an escapist. You can jump to heights of two meters without taking his run-up and also accelerate at a high speed to long distances.
But the same dog, so cunning and agile that it is able to hunt rabbits on the jump, it is also a very noble dog, especially with children. In fact, this breed can be used in schools with small children, who need special care.
