Ibizan Hound Dog Temperament
The graceful Ibizan Hound retains great hunting instinct, using his acute senses of hearing and smell to locate small animals, and relishing the opportunity to chase anything that moves. Unlike most Sighthounds, he barks when chasing. He is gentle, mild-mannered, even-tempered and loyal, and makes a quiet, trustworthy house pet.
