Mexican Hairless Dog

The Mexican Hairless dog has been close to extinction on several occasions, it survives today in three recognised sizes, miniature, intermediate and standard.

Once considered a 'gift-from-the-gods' endowed with healing, protective and magical powers, these remarkable dogs were often used as bed-warmers. Unfortunately, and repellent though it seems to dog lovers today, they were also prized for their flesh and sacrificed both as offerings, and as guides to the Land of the Dead.

An intelligent and hardy breed, what it lacks in 'cuddlesome-ness' it makes up for with exotic charm. Being a hairless breed no brushing is required but the skin can be kept in good condition with a regular application of moisturising cream or oil.
