The Ibizan Hound is one of the world’s most unique dogs. Dogs found in Egypt around 3400 BC resemble the Ibizan Hound. Many believe that the dogs were taken to the island of Ibiza and other islands off the coast of Spain around 700-900 BC.
They have a long, lean body with a narrow muzzle and were originally bred to hunt cats, rabbits, and rodents, according to dogbreedinfo.com.
Often called “Beezers” they are playful, polite, and quiet dogs. It is said that the dogs will even blush when they get excited. They are fast learners and very trainable. Some people have no respect for the great history and majesty of these animals.
In 2013, Queen, an Ibizan Hound that was owned by some hunters. She did what they wanted. When she became too sick to hunt for them – they just left her in a field to die.
When they found Queen, she couldn’t stand up. She was rushed to an animal clinic, and they began treatment. It didn’t take them long to realize the hunters had practically worked Queen to death.
Queen was in the last stages of a neurological disorder that causes weakness and pain. The disorder can be brought on by deficiencies in nutrition or other disorders. Despite her predicament, Queen was in good spirits and was very hungry. The group called “Let’s Adopt” took over her care.
Two clinics before had suggested euthanasia. Let’s Adopt wasn’t willing to give up that easily. Despite their best efforts, Queen passed on February 10 2013.
