Mexican Hairless DogOriginal Name: Xoloitzcuintle
The Xoloitzcuintle has very ancient origins because it gets its name from the god Xolotl. According to Aztec beliefs, this dog was sent to accompany the souls of the deceased on their journey to the kingdom of the dead.
More simply known as the hairless Mexican dog because of its lack of hair, this cheerful dog is much appreciated as a companion. Wary of strangers, the Xoloitzcuintle is also calm and intelligent, making it a good guard dog.
The Xoloitzcuintle, also known as the Mexican Hairless, dates back 3,000 years. They have been found in many Colima, Aztec, and Mayan tombs. There is proof that this breed of dog traveled across the Bering Strait. Their name comes from the word for the Aztec gods, Xolotl and Itzcuintli. They were, at one point, almost extinct but in the nineteenth century, with an increase of interest in this breed, the Xolo was saved. They were officially recognized in 2011 by the AKC (American Kennel Club). However, the AKC dropped them out in 1959 because there were barely any registrations.
In appearance, the Xoloitzcuintle usually has no hair but can have a little on their head and tail or they may have a short, flat coat. The coats come in most colors including black, gray, bronze, red, fawn, solid, or spotted. Their eyes are almond shaped and medium-sized. The skull is wedge shaped and is parallel to the muzzle planes. The muzzle should be longer than the skull. The jaws meet in a scissor bite. The Xolo has three sizes: Toy, Miniature, and Standard. The Toy size is from 10 to 14 inches tall at the withers and weighs 5 to 15 pounds. The Miniature is anywhere from 14 to 18 inches at the withers and weights from 15 to 30 pounds. The Standard size is from 18 inches to 23 inches and weighs anywhere from 25 pounds to 40 pounds.
Xoloitzcuintle dogs are extremely loyal and loving dogs to their families. They are easily trained but like most dogs you most show that you are the alpha or else they will run the house for you. This breed is described as intelligent, alert, and athletic. This dog is fiercely loyal and you can see this if there is only one family member that takes care of the dog then this dog will only take orders from this person and not the other family members. They do not tolerate abuse or an unstable environment even though they are great survival dogs.
That Xolo was mainly used by the Aztecs and Indians as body warmers, food, and sacrifices. The heat of their bodies was used as a medicine to cure stomach aches and joint problems. Today, this dog breed is used mostly as companion dogs but some people prize them for their body warmth.This text was written by Starrise
