Mexican Hairless (Standard/Miniature)

From Dog

The Mexican Hairless (Xoloitzcuintli) breed is a South American dog developed in Mexico.

The Mexican Hairless comes in three sizes: standard, miniature and toy. It can also be found in hairless (more common) and finely coated versions. It comes in a wide range of solid and/or spotted colors including black, brown, gray, slate, brindle, red and fawn. No matter the size, the Mexican Hairless is a compact, hardy canine with a broad head (sometimes with a tuft of hair), bat-like ears and dark eyes. Their long, saber-like tails are usually carried low.

The Mexican Hairless can live as long as 20 years with relatively few genetic health problems.
