I am getting an eight-year-old Peruvian Inca Orchid - how will I take care of him?



Let your Peruvian Inca Orchid get to know you, find out what kind of dog food he likes, purchase the necessary dog care items and be sure to take good care of his skin. It helps to talk to a vet.


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. As long as you are put rubbing alcohol and lotion on their skin, they will not develop these bumps and will need fewer baths. They love wearing clothes and playing with 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 backyard and usually just let them out there, I would recommend taking them on walks as well. 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.


I have a Peruvian Inca Orchid and he is very playful with everyone but he does not like clothes, he loves toys and running around.


My Peruvian Inca Orchid hates clothes! He will tolerate wearing them but when I take the clothes off he is so happy! Lol

I rescued one and she is lovely. Weary among strangers but she loves to be hugged or caressed. Doesn't bark a lot. No hair, no odor,. NO allergy. Love her.


I owned 3 PIOs, all were rescued from a neighbor who was a puppy mill and left them behind to die when he abandoned his home. I have owned dogs for many years and these dogs were so bonded, so loving and caring, they owned me, I didn't own them. We bottle fed them for many weeks, two hairless one blond. The two hairless passed away from Pancreatitis at 8 years old we suspect due to careless inbreeding and the blond less that a year later we suspect from the stress of loss of his brother and sister, he started having seizures that were untreatable. Love your dogs, appreciate every minute with them. I miss these dogs like lost family members.


I have a female PIO and she's is sweetest thing ever. She gets along with all the other dogs. I also own a Pekingese, a Bull Terrier and a Caucasian Ovcharka. After owning big and "difficult" dogs for decades, the PIO is like heaven sent. I love this breed!
