Overview
An extremely ancient and rare breed, the Peruvian Inca Orchid originated in Peru during A.D. 750. A gifted sight hound, this breed was highly prized by the Inca Indians. The Hairless variety was often looked upon with more favor and only kept as pets; the Coated variety were used as hunters. In the Peruvian Inca Orchid's native country they are referred to as "Perro sin Pelo del Peru", while in North America and portions of Europe they are called the Peruvian Inca Orchid. This breed is quite uncommon and difficult to acquire.
Character
An elegant, graceful, and slightly-built breed, the Peruvian Inca Orchid possesses strength, agility, and speed. They exhibit a noble demeanor and are "deer-like" in movement.
Temperament
The Peruvian Inca Orchid breed is not recommended for first time dog owners. They do best in a home with older considerate children and get along well with other dogs. They are not recommended for homes with non-canine pets. The Peruvian Inca Orchid are highly devoted, affectionate, and loving. This breed is extremely sensitive and fragile. They do not do well in the sun or in cold climates. Peruvian Inca Orchid's are very soft-tempered, but are reserved, distrustful, and wary of strangers. They are highly intelligent, obedient, fastidious, and willing to please. The Peruvian Inca Orchid is supple, lithe, agile, and quick.
Care
The Peruvian Inca Orchid breed is prone to early tooth loss. The skin of the Hairless variety must be kept protected at all times. It is important to not "overly-lotion" the skin as this makes the skin more prone to tearing, clogged pores, and acne. Special attention must be given to the ears to prevent dryiness and cracking. The Coated variety should be brushed when necessary. Bathing of both varieties should be done only when required using a mild shampoo.
Coat
The Peruvian Inca Orchid comes in two varieties: Hairless and Coated. The Hairless variety may have a large amount of pink skin, or the skin may be fully colored. There may be very short hair on the tail, feet, and head. The Coated variety has a full body coat. The hair may be short, medium, or long in length. The Coated variety sheds little to no hair. Both varieties are odorless.
Training
Early socialization is required. Peruvian Inca Orchid's do not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with kindness and consistency. The Peruvian Inca Orchid is highly obedient and quick to learn.
Activity
The Peruvian Inca Orchid breed is well suited for apartment living. Yards must be securely fenced with ample shade. They do not require an inordinate amount of exercise and a securely leashed daily walk will suffice. They thrive on spending time with their family and do best being kept indoors as much as possible.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Peruvian Inca Orchid 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.

I have a Peruvian Inca Orchid myself and when he was younger he got bumps on his back. You want to make sure that they don't get bumps because most of the time they are very playful and the sores open and get infected. I found the best way to prevent this is to take a cotton ball and put a little bit of rubbing alcohol on it and rub them down at least 3 times a week. They also love lotion. As long as you are put rubbing alcohol and lotion on there skin they will not develop these bumps and will need fewer baths. They love clothes and toys. They love being under the covers and being "hugged". Going for walks is very important so they know that they cannot react to other surroundings while out and about. If you have a back yard and usually just let them out there I recommend taking them walks too not just letting them out back. And last but not least feed them like any other dog. Give them lots of love. If you need any other assistance I recommend talking to a professional breeder or vet
