#6- Xoloitzcuntle

Xolo is native to Mexico, thus earning the “home town favorite” edge, but with bat-like ears and a strong resemblance to the legendary Pharaoh Hound of Egypt these dogs are strikingly well-built.

Their dominant trait, needless to say, is that they have no hair. Their body color is black to smoky blue, so this trait doesn’t look all that weird?
