Developed during the 1970s by breeder Edwin Scott, the American Hairless Terrier descended by chance from purebred, coated Rat Terriers. With the awareness of allergy sufferers to this unique breed they become popular in the United States and such countries as England, Finland, and Canada. American Hairless Terrier's are the first Hairless breed to have originated in the United States.
Small to medium in size, the American Hairless Terrier is agile, active, and smoothly muscled. They are elegant, compact, exhibit a confident appearance, and have an inquisitive expression.

Does your American Hairless Terrier bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Affectionate, playful, and loving, the American Hairless Terrier is also fearless and fiesty. They do best with older, considerate children or children they have been with since puppyhood. They do well with dogs, cats, and other household pets. The American Hairless Terrier breed is typically very social and friendly with strangers but can also be territorial. They make good watchdogs as they will bark to alert their family to visitors and out of the ordinary sounds.
The skin of the American Hairless Terrier must be protected from both heat and cold; sunscreen in the Summer, a sweater in the Winter. Regular bathing is recommended using a mild shampoo. To prevent dry skin, lotion should be applied. The nails should be checked and kept trimmed. American Hairless Terrier's are prone to skin rashes.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
The American Hairless Terrier comes in two different varieties: Hairless and Coated. In the Hairless variety puppies are born with a fine, soft "down" that diminishes by the age of 8 weeks leaving the puppy hairless. In the Coated variety the coat is dense, short, smooth, and sleek.
The American Hairless Terrier is easily trained. Early socialization and obedience are recommended. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new American Hairless Terrier puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
The American Hairless Terrier breed is active indoors and is generally suited for city and apartment living. Ideally, a small or medium-sized securely fenced yard is best as the American Hairless Terrier thrives on off-lead play. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Do the coated American Hairless Terrier's have the same allergy profile as the naked ones? I understand the hair issue but do they both have the same low level of dander?

Are American Hairless Terrier's good tempered?



American Hairless Terrier's are very much so. They're just beautifully tempered.


American Hairless Terrier's need to be socialized to accept strangers, and are wonderful with people they know

Anonymous asked:
Do American Hairless Terrier's need lots of grooming?



The American Hairless Terrier's skin needs to be protected from heat and cold so in the summer sunblock should be applied to his skin and in the winter a doggie coat or sweater will do fine. They can also get rashes so you can try using lotion to prevent that.


Grooming consists of a weekly bath, trim nails and ears cleaned out.

I am considering adopting a 5-year-old female American Hairless Terrier. I am considering adopting a 5-year-old female American Hairless Terrier. She is located in Connecticut. I live in New York. Will the car ride overwhelm her? Are they one of the sweetest dog breeds? Is the low teens a good weight for this breed? Do they get along with their dog siblings and dogs they meet along walks? Are they tidy and she is housebroken and are they quiet? Do they love to follow their family from one room to the next and do they wag their tail? Do they like to sit in your lap and do they like to be wrapped in blankets and do they like to snuggle? This dog came to the rescue overweight and needs to lose some weight to get her figure back, any feeding suggestions? Also, her skin hadn't been taken care of, how do I take care of it to make it prosper? Do they need to wear clothes in the winter? Do they need sunscreen in the summer?



Okay, I am going to answer your million questions with bullet points. The car ride should be okay, but make sure you make frequent stops and have a good leash/collar on her so she doesn't slip out and run away. They are sweet dogs, but every dog is different. The low teens is a fine weight, but your vet will be able to give you the weight YOUR dog should be at. Every dog is different and will interact with other dogs differently. Allow your dog time to adjust to you before letting your dog meet any new dog. If she is house-trained, then she will be fine. But watch her as she will be stressed by the move. Every dog is different and socialization will depend on whether she is quiet or loud. All dogs wag their tails.


Some dogs follow their owner's, while other's are comfortable being on their own. Your dog will show you if she is a lap dog or not, and most like to be wrapped in blankets, but every dog is different, so you will have to see. A grain-free, high quality dog food is the best thing for your dog and will help your dog loose weight easily. There are lotions you can buy that will help her skin. Pet stores should carry them, but you can buy them online as well. They will need clothing in the winter and sunscreen in the summer. You can buy doggy sunscreen at pet stores and online.

No, American Hairless Terrier's are hairless.


The American Hairless Terrier variety does not shed nor does it have fleas. The coated variety does have hair and does shed.


American Hairless Terrier's do shed if you looked at grooming


The hairless sheds at a few weeks old then never again and the coated variety sheds as any other dog
