There are also coated varieties of this breed available their coat should be short and sleek.

Mexican Hairless Character

This little breed of dog is lively, athletic, loyal and alert but the main trait it possesses is a loving and affectionate nature. They have been nicknamed ‘The Velcro Dog’ due to their habit of sticking to one person like glue, it is important for all the family members to bond with the dog as this way it will not become quite so dependent on just the one person. They are incredibly intelligent and although their size is obviously against them being a terrific watchdog they are protective of their family and will alert them to strangers. The added advantage to this hairless breed is their lack of fleas and they are great for allergy sufferers.
