SERANDIDA’S IBIZAN HOUND HISTORY
.

Index placeholderThe original word Serandida was formed by using the root word of “Serendipity” which denotes happiness. Susan St. John's first two Irish Setter foundation bitches were “Candida” and “Seranade”. By adding a little imagination the kennel name of "Serandida" came into being in 1974.

Early on Susan knew that she wanted to be a breeder of quality dogs. Jim Brown had been a professional handler for several years when they met. The two started their marriage in 1977 and combined their efforts to achieve Susan's original goals.

Serandida Ibizan Hounds now have a thirty year track record of producing the quality dogs that Susan dreamed of so many years ago. Over 150 Champions have been produced within the sporting, toy and hound groups. There have been Best in Show winning Irish Setters, Champion Basenji's, Greyhounds, Poodles, and of course their much loved Ibizan Hounds.
In 1979, the year of AKC breed recognition, Susan and Jim first met the lovely Group winning Ibizan Hound, Ch. Ishtar Sonnet of Loki, C.D., Fld. Ch.. They have spent the last thirty years breeding ever better Ibizan hounds.

SERANDIDA IBIZAN HOUND’S FUTURE GOALS

Serandida Ibizan Hound Kennels is working to perfect the short coated Ibizan Hound in the 21st century. We have a very clear picture of what we think the Ibizan Hound should look like. We want big moving dogs that have great reach and drive while maintaining that correct joint flexion that is asked for in the standard. We want big, upright ears that are up more than they are down. We want long, slender heads with a correct obligue eye. We want the correct balance of leg length to body depth. We want our dogs to have big, generous, loving hearts, with no hint of shyness or strangeness. We want regal dogs that can still be the court jester at times. But most of all, we want to produce dogs that say, “Hey, look at me, I’m something special!”
