Xoloitzcuintle

Xoloitzcuintle
The Xoloitzcuintle is one of several breeds of hairless dog. It is found in Estándar, Intermedio, and Miniatura sizes. The Xolo also comes in a coated variety, totally covered in fur. Coated and hairless can be born in the same litter as a result of the same combination of genes. The hairless variant is known as the Perro pelón mexicano or Mexican hairless dog. It is characterized by its duality, wrinkles, and dental abnormalities, along with a primitive temper. In Nahuatl, from which its name originates, it is xōlōitzcuintli and xōlōitzcuintin . The name comes from the god Xolotl that according to ancient narratives is its creator and itzcuīntli, meaning 'dog' in Nahuatl language.
