Good With Dogs:⬛⬛⬛⬛⬜⬜⬜
The Mexican Hairless Dog is not considered aggressive, but they are protective of their property and their family. If threatened, they will protect their owner(s). The MHD is good with older, considerate children that they have been raised with. They do not do well with young, handsy children that do not know how to show the respect a dog deserves. Because they are so protective, any children coming into the home to play with the one's that live there should be taught the rules around the dog. Better yet, separating the dog from the children while they play would be best, so that if a family member cries out from laughter/fun, the dog does not take it as the other child hurting his/her family.
This breed is relatively hearty and doesn't tend to get sick on long or short trips. However, puppies can get motion sickness when just starting out. So by taking your pup in the car and getting them used to traveling, you'll have a great traveling companion when they grow up.
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.
The Mexican Hairless Dog is considered a rare breed of dog in North America. Puppies can average $2000.00 and up, depending on the breeder. However, the breed is mostly established in Mexico, so finding a breeder there is much easier.
