Xoloitzcuintli

Pronounced show-low-its-queen-tlee, Xoloitzcuintli is also called the Mexican Hairless or Xolo for short. It is characterized by a broad skull, long muzzle with nose that is either black or flesh, and eyes that are slightly almond shaped colored black or yellow. Its bat-like ears are about four inches long. Its graceful neck is complemented by its straight and flexible back. Xoloitzcuintli actually has two varieties: the hairless and the haired Xolo. The hairless type literally has no coat, except for the long tuft on its head and the hair on its long tail’s tip. The coated Xolo has either these grayish and blackish colors. It also comes in three sizes: the Standard, the Miniature, and the Toy Xolo.
