Past Litters


Ibizan Hounds are consistently one of the fewest-registered breeds in the AKC due to a relatively small and responsible community of preservation breeders who do not produce many litters each year. Because of this, you should be prepared to do your homework, speak with reputable breeders and ask to be placed on a reservation list for a future litter. Do not be discouraged if there are not puppies available when you first contact a breeder as most have several reservations before they even breed a litter. Abbaio Ibizan Hounds produces an average of 1-2 litters per year out of health-tested and titled parents with sound temperaments.

We are currently planning a litter for Fall 2021 between Turtle and Faline. Both sire and dam are fully health tested with passing results and proven in the show ring. Faline is an accomplished lure coursing dog who was #2 Ibizan Hound in the United States in AKC Lure Coursing in 2019. Turtle has begun dock diving and scent work training and is showing aptitude and enthusiasm for both! Both Turtle and Faline have the amazing, outgoing temperaments I strive for. They don't know a stranger, either human or dog, and make beezer-lovers out of everyone they meet. Please contact Sarah if you are interested in a puppy from this or a future pairing.

Health Testing

Abbaio is committed to the health of our dogs and puppies. Breeding dogs are tested for hearing (BAER), vision (OFA CAER), hips (OFA or Penn Hip), thyroid (OFA) and cardiac (OFA). Most results are available to be viewed in the public database at, though I do often submit hearing, vision and cardiac testing in batches so they may not be viewable right away. Many or all of these tests are often performed on dogs I have bred but do not plan to use in my breeding program in order to have more information about the entire family. BAER hearing testing is performed on my puppies before they go to their new homes, as well as at least 1 physical and cardiac exam by my veterinarian.
