I want one! I’ve heard it said that “they’re so ugly they’re cute”, but I just see them as adorable. Xoloitzcuintles are known to be loyal and intelligent pets and are ideal for those who suffer from pet alergies (as they have no hair or dander) .
A fixture in Mexican society since time immemorial, at one time the Xoloitzcuintle was bred specifically as a source of food. Thankfully those days are gone and the proud Xolo (as they’re known in short) is reclaiming its position as an emblem of Mexico.
