Ibizan Hound Question

Ibizan Hound and Podenco?

Is there any difference in an Ibizan and a Podenco? I have always wanted an Ibizan and am thinking about adopting a 1 and a half year old that might not have gotten too much attention. I am told he is very needy and affectionate of which sounds great to me. I was just wondering if there could be any troubles with his behavior and retraining?

Yes, the Podenco and the Ibizan Hound are two different breeds. Please research what dog the 1 1/2 year old is before going any further. If the dog has not had a lot of attention, but seems very needy, then that can lead to separation anxiety when you do get the dog. Contact your local positive reinforcement trainer and enroll in some obedience classes as soon as possible. This will help you with the bond between you and your new fur-baby and will also help in exposing any behavioral problems your trainer can help you solve.
