The adult Xolo is a calm dog who is aloof toward strangers but attentive toward their family. They usually choose one person as their favorite but don't stint on affection toward other family members. A daily walk or an energetic playtime in a fenced yard satisfies their exercise needs. The rest of the time, they'll enjoy lying in the sun or snuggling with you in an effort to stay warm. Take them with you whenever you can; they're not fond of being left home alone.
The Xolo comes in three different sizes, so the breed is adaptable to any type of home.
Native to Mexico and Central America, the Xolo is also known as the Mexican Hairless.
Although they're known as a hairless breed, the Xolo also comes in a coated variety.
The Xolo was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 2011 as a member of the Non-Sporting Group.
CHILDREN & PETS
The family-oriented Xolo can be good with children, especially if they're brought up with them. They're not a big fan of having their ears or tail pulled, however, so supervise any interactions with very young children. Teach your child never to approach any dog while they're sleeping or eating or to try to take the dog's food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child. Xoloitzcuintli can get along well with other dogs and cats if they grow up with them, too.
