The Star of the World Dog Show

XolosMove over all of you German shepards, Labradors, and Chihuahuas. There’s a new star in town — the hairless Xoloitzcuintles. They are stealing the stage at the World Dog Show in Mexico (they are native to Mexico).

They are nicknamed “Xolos” by breeders and are becoming more and more popular throughout the world. Xolos were going extinct in the 1940s and then a group of Mexicans searched for Xolos and began breeding them. Now this breed is up to 5,000 in numbers worldwide. They have bat-like ears, have soft, warm skin, and keep their coat oiled with glands found between their toes.

    Those last two syllables don’t sound very reproductive.
