Mexican hairless or Xoloitzcuintle Description
  The Xoloitzcuintle is also called the Mexican Hairless or Tepeizeuintli and resembles a robust Manchester terrier. There are three types: Standard, Miniature, and Toy. It has a broad skull and long muzzle with a black or flesh-colored nose. Its medium-sized, slightly almond-shaped eyes vary from black to yellow in color and have a lively, intelligent expression. Its ears are bat-like but elegant and are about 4 inches long. Its neck is graceful, somewhat like that of an antelope. It has a staight, flexible back. It does not have a coat, but does have one lone tuft of hair on its head and longer hair on the tip of its long, sleek tail. There is a variety called the Coated Xolo that does have hair all over the body.
