BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The Hairless Khala is also known as Pila. The dog is an ancient and native breed of Latin America, from Mexico throughout Central and South America. They have only recently been recognized as a separate dog breed and given the name Khala which means 'without clothing' in the language of the Quechua Indians. It is found in two varieties, the shorter legged Medio (potteryType) and long legged Grand (Gazehound type). Both the types are recognized under one name; the Hairless Khala. The difference between the two types is more in substance than in size. The Medio stands between 15-17 inches weighing 15-30 lbs while Grand stands between 17-20 inches and weighs between 18-30 lbs. The Medio type is powerful yet graceful in appearance and Grand type is similar to sighthounds. Generally both types have long and wide head, shorter muzzle and large, thin and wide ears. Eyes are large and dark in colour. Body is long, strong with deep chest and well sprung ribs. Long tail tapers to the tip. This breed is rather unknown outside its origin and is NOT recognized by AKC or any other major kennel club.

COLOR
Though most Hairless Khala are found in dark gray, colouring is immaterial for this breed and any colour is acceptable.

COAT
The Hairless Khala has no coat.

PERSONALITY
The Hairless Khala is obedient, friendly and loving to its family but wary, suspicious and even unfriendly towards strangers. The dog makes a good family pet but needs training to live with other dogs. Though not pushy, this dog is not submissive either. It prefers flight to fight when a situation arises as the dog is prone to injuries due to no hairing. This breed needs an experienced master who can understand the dog. The Hairless Khala loves to live in the packs and two dogs will be happier together than one alone dog.

CARE
Bathe only when necessary. Sunscreen can be used to avoid sunburn.

TRAINING
Obedient to its master, the dog will need a gentle yet firm and confident trainer to use proper training methods. Display of proper leadership qualities is vital before this or any dog breed in general.

ACTIVITY
Daily walking should provide required exercise for this dog although it will be happy when given chance to play and run.
