Arbeca Ibizan Hounds, located in rural Delaware. We are
dedicated to preserving this ancient and unique hunting
hound and respecting the function and culture that produced
it. Equally, we strive for health and soundness. It is
our goal that prospective homes will be proud and happy
to have an Arbeca
Ibizan Hound as a family member.
We are proud to say that every Arbeca puppy is registered with the American Kennel Club and that Arbeca has earned AKC recognition as an AKC Breeder of Merit.
Ibizan Hound is known as the “Podenco Ibicenco” under the Federacion
Cynologigue (FCI) and as the “ca eivissenc” in
the Catalan language of Ibiza, where the breed
originated and is mainly used for hunting rabbits.
Beginning in 1995 I have been learning about and
living with both wire
and smooth coated Ibizan Hounds. My Spanish imports from active hunting
kennels have provided me with valuable insights
into the conformation and temperament of actual
working Ibizans. See “Our
Ibizans ” for pedigrees and show and
My hope is that what you find here about Arbeca Ibizan
Hounds reflects the quality I am striving for in my breeding
program and my love for and commitment to this breed.
