Overview
Also referred to as the Xoloitzcuintli, the Mexican Hairless is one of the rarest and oldest breeds in the world. Dating back over 3,000 years, the Mexcian Hairless were highly prizeed for their healing and magical powers. Aztec Indians found this breed useful as bedwarmers, and considered them sacred. Once in danger of extinction, the Mexican Hairless breed was revived and today makes a cherished companion.
Character
The most distinctive feature of this breed are the upright, large bat-like ears which provide acutely keen hearing. A primitive breed, the Mexican Hairless is hardy, well-built, extremely agile, and elegant.

Does your Mexican Hairless Dog bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Mexican Hairless breed is affectionate, loving, intelligent, and devoted. They are highly protective of their family, home, and territory. This breed is not recommended for first time dog owners. The Mexican Hairless breed typically does not bark. Instead, they emit a howl to alert their family to danger. They do best in a home with older considerate children and dogs they have been raised with. They may be aggressive toward dogs they do not know. The Mexican Hairless breed is a sensitive and emotional breed that demands an inordinate amount of attention. They will become destructive if left alone for extended periods of time, and are prone to digestive problems and neurotic behavior if they become stressed.
Care
The Mexican Hairless breed is not suited for cold climates, and requires a sweater in cooler temperatures. The health of the skin is extremely important. Only bathe this breed when absolutely necessary, as over bathing can harm the skin. While it is also important to use lotion and sunscreen on the Hairless variety, caution must be exercised. Too much lotion or sunscreen results in clogged pores and acne. The Coated variety of this breed requires very minimal brushing. The Mexican Hairless is prone to such health issues as early tooth loss, allergies to food, skin infection, and drug sensitivity.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Mexican Hairless comes in two varieties: Hairless and Coated. The Hairless only possesses a short tuft of hair on the head and tail. The skin is smooth, soft, and sufficiently hardy to withstand the elements. The Coated variety has a full coat of hair that is short, sleek, and glossy. This breed is non-shedding and odorless.
Training
Early and intense socialization is an absolute must. The Mexican Hairless is quick to learn but requires a dominant handler. It is important that training be done with respect, love, firmness, fairness, and consistency. The Mexican Hairless excels in agility, obedience, and as service and therapy dogs. 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 Mexican Hairless Dog puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Mexican Hairless breed is well suited for apartment living. They are relatively inactive and enjoy going for securely leashed walks, sunbathing in a securely fenced yard, and spending time with their family. It is important that during any outdoor activity this breed is appropriately covered for the climate. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Why do Mexican Hairless Dog dogs not have hair?

The Mexican Hairless Dog or Xolo (for short) is thought to be one of very few "natural" breeds. The hairlessness of the dog coming through by a natural genetic mutation that was then kept in the breed when humans started to breed dogs together. Contrary to the name, the M.H.D has small tuffs of hair on its head and tail, as well as some light hair on it's back and possibly it's paws. They were known as "Doctor" dogs, as the warmth from their body would sooth people with arthritis and other ailments.

Why don't Mexican Hairless Dogs have fur? I didn't know some dogs didn't have fur. I only knew that some cats have no fur. Are they mean? Does it depend on the dog/puppy? They sound weird, do they look wired? Do they feel soft or do they feel weird? Do they get cold? Are they from Mexico? Where are they from? Do they have sharp teeth?

It's actually based on their genetics. They're just like that. They are very friendly. They are hairless muscular dogs that come in a few different sizes. They look different than any other dog I've ever seen. No, they don't feel weird. They get cold in cold temperatures and, in that case, need a doggy sweater. They are from Mexico. I don't think they are ugly, I think they are the coolest looking dog there is, but that's just my opinion. Their teeth are sharp, but not as much as other dogs. Their teeth aren't like knives or anything. Hope this answers your questions.
