Also known as the Mexican Hairless Dog, the Xoloitzcuintli is a purebred pup who can come in three different sizes. For example, they can be Toy, Miniature, or Standard in size. This means they can grow between ten and 23 inches tall, respectively, and weigh between ten and 55 pounds. Also, their average lifespan is about 13 to 18 years, with the smaller ones living longer. Take a look at the Xoloitzcuintli photos shown below if you want to learn more about this dog breed.
This pooch is known for being loyal and calm but alert. They make excellent watchdogs and will bark a moderate amount, whether they want your attention or feel the need to alert you of something. For instance, Xoloitzcuintlis are affectionate with their family members, but they’re okay with young children, meeting strangers, and other dogs. They would much prefer to be with you and be the only dog you have.
Since their hairless, this doggo is easy to grooming because very little grooming is involved. You need to make sure their skin remains clean and healthy. However, there’s no shedding, and they don’t drool, so if you suffer from allergies, this will be a great dog for you. On the other hand, they do have high energy levels. So, make sure you can give them at least an hour of exercise every day.
