Vetstreet.com: 5 Popular Breeds of Hairless Cats and Dogs

5 of 6

Xoloitzcuintli

This breed’s name isn’t as difficult to pronounce as it looks: show-low-eats-queent-lee. Or just call him “show-low,” for short. Depictions of the Xoloitzcuintli in Mexico date as far back as pre-Columbian times, so he's considered to be a primitive breed that developed with little human intervention. The clever canine is characterized by his bare-naked body, with large ears that stand erect, satiny skin and a jaunty, low-set tail. (His coated sibling sports short, smooth hair.) And like the Peruvian Inca Orchid, this breed comes in toy, miniature and standard sizes. Xolos are intelligent, independent dogs who tend to be aloof around strangers, but they are very loving, loyal and protective toward their family members.
