BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The American Hairless Terrier is a look-a-like of its ancestors, the Rat-Terriers. This small size dog can reach heights between 7 to 16 inches and will weigh anywhere around 5-16 pounds. It is a well-muscled dog with deep chest and strong shoulders, solid neck and powerful legs. The ears are erect and tail full length. The coat has no fur(as evident from the name). The dog appears to be pink with gray, red, black or golden spots. This breed is NOT recognized by AKC. It is however recognized by UKC, NKC, CKC, ACR, DRA.

COLOR
The American Hairless Terrier is found in white, black, blue, pink, brown, tan and sable.

COAT
As the name suggests, the American Hairless Terrier has no coat. It is completely hairless. Newborn babies have sparse fuzzy hair that shed away within first six weeks.

PERSONALITY
The American Hairless Terrier is a strong, playful and loyal dog. Intelligent and curious, this energetic breed is very compatible with all members of its family and specially children. The dog is graceful and athletic with typical terrier temperament. It is alert and attentive to its surrounding and will signal alarm if it sense something unusual around it. This breed is generally friendly with strangers though it has a knack of chasing small animals. Early age socialization with other house pets will make this dog compatible to live with smaller pets. This dog is energetic and likes to play with family members. This dog is an excellent companion and makes a very good house pet.

CARE
The American Hairless Terrier will need extra protection in hot weather as there is no coat to protect the skin. Sunscreen will need to be applied to the skin to protect it from sunburn.

TRAINING
This dog is intelligent and eager to please and can learn fast. It needs a firm and consistent trainer. As with all dogs, training should start from early age.

ACTIVITY
This dog needs fair amount of exercise and play time to keep itself happy and content. This playful breed likes to play and the owner should provide the dog with ample playing opportunities.
