  • "a commitment to excellence"

    Located in the metropolitan area of Tampa, Florida, I have been involved with Ibizan Hounds since 2002. Abbaio is home to winners and placers at Westminster, AKC/Eukanuba, Morris & Essex, IHCUS National Specialty weekend, Beezerfest and the World Dog Show. Our dogs have won and placed in groups and accumulated championships, grand championships, rally, agility and lure coursing titles. Above all else, Abbaio Ibizans bring joy to their families as loving companions.
    Abbaio is not an online puppy store. Ibizan Hounds are a rare breed and not common in all areas. We welcome inquiries from any and all who are interested in sharing their life with an Ibizan, or just learning more about them. A personal meeting with me and the dogs is essential in making your final decision.
