Ibizan hound Description
  The Ibizan Hound is also called Podenco Ibicenoco. It is an agile, deer-like, elegant and athletic hound. It has a long, arched neck and a long wedge-shaped head. It has very large, amber colored eyes and triangular ears that stand up when the dog is alert. It has exceptionally healthy teeth. Its nose is rose or flesh-colored and has a slightly convex shape. Its body is fine-boned, but not as slender as many of the other sighthounds. The Ibizan Hound has flat, sleek muscles without any heaviness and its front legs are perfectly straight all the way from the elbows to the ground. It is "hare-footed", with long toes. There are three types of Ibizan-smooth haried, long haired, and wire haired. The most common is the smooth haired and the rarest is the long haired. The wire-haired has a longer coat that of rough hair that is a softer textured than the other two types.
