The Xoloitzcuintle is an ancient breed. It is a truly hairless dog with only short, coarse hair on the top of the head, the end of the tail and on the feet. Some have no hair at all.
The breed comes in three sizes with Mexico and FCI countries recognizing; Standard, Intermediate and Miniature.
As we have become an AKC breed, they recognize us as Standard, Miniature and Toy.
Different Clubs have different standards as to what sizes are acceptable within the varieties.
There is also a coated Xoloitzcuintli. It has a short coat, close to the body.
It may not be recognizable as a Xolo on first glance, but lined up side by side, the similarities can be seen.
The Xolo can be any color or combination of colors, but due to it's ability to sunburn any white or pink markings, solid colors and minimal white are preffered.
I hope you enjoy your stay at Shida Xoloitzcuintli

My start into the breed of Xoloitzcuintle has been slow but very eventful.

I can't thank Patty Hoover enough to place this beautiful dog in my care.
Wawahki is as beautiful inside as she is outside and she has a heart of gold.
Special thanks to her caretakers Debra & David Melitz
