Overview
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.
Character
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.
Temperament
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.
Care
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.
Coat
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.
Training
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.
Activity
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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of American Hairless Terrier puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

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. Hope this helps :)

Grooming consists of a weekly bath, trim nails and clean ears

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.

That was supposed to say American Hairless Terrier's are NOT particularly barky.

American Hairless Terrier's are terriers so yes they will bark, as with any breed you must supervise children when with the dog and teach the child how to play with the dog
