The Ibizan Hound is a sighthound whose game is primarily rabbits, this ancient hound has been bred for thousands of years with function being of utmost importance. Ibizan Hounds possess a deer-like elegance with the strength of a true hunter.

Dexter on the hunt

Ibizan Hounds are excellent companions, out going playful pets, and loyal friends. They make great watchdogs without being aggressive to those entering your house, their powerful bark is enough warning for any intruder to take heed.

They are extremely even-tempered and adapt well into the life style of their owners. Being very versatile, they always "give it their all" either as the family dog, out on the coursing field or in the show, obedience and agility ring.

First and foremost the dogs of Luxor are our beloved family members. Our dogs are bred only to preserve this invaluable breed, never for profit. We are very selective when breeding. That is why there is usually only one litter born every two years, at most. When breeding we try our very best to maintain this breeds natural appearance and hunting abilities.

Malcolm on the hunt

By obtaining show and lure coursing titles we not only have fun with our dogs but we put their form and function to the test so we may breed better dogs in the future.

Dexter

In hopes to achieve superior health, all the dogs at Luxor are tested for normal hips, eyes and thyroid levels. Social and outgoing, all puppies are house raised with children, small dogs and cats.
