"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, the World Dog Show and the National Lure Coursing Championship. Our dogs have won and placed in groups and accumulated championships, grand championships, rally, agility and lure coursing titles. Ourside of the United States, Abbaio Ibizans have won championships in Azerbaijan, Belarus, Canada, Denmark, Gibraltar, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain and Sweden. 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.
