Ibizan Hound (6/10)

The Ibizan Hound looks like its big-eared ancestors, who raised dust in Ancient Egypt two millennia BC in pursuit of game, the greyhound, still pricked up its ears, gazes intently at the realities of the 20th century. These dogs have carried their almost unchanged appearance over the centuries. Unlike the Greyhound, the Ivitz greyhound, common on the island of Mallorca, is used for hunting with the sight (like a greyhound) and on the trail (like a hound). Related breeds include Greyhound and Saluki. The rush of the blood of the Egyptian mastiffs strengthened the Ivica greyhound.
