History

The exact origin of the Peruvian Hairless Dog. However, their ancestors seem to be deeply rooted in Peru: Illustrations on the vessels of Moche culture, show hairless dogs already in the 750 AC. Later, these funny animals were reserved for the rich Incas, who took care not to mate them with other native dogs. It was also the Incas who banned the consumption of dog meat in the northern regions of Peru.

When the Spaniards conquered the country, found many naked dogs among the orchids of the Incas, so the Europeans called them “perros de las flores“. During the period of conquest, the breed was almost extinct, but some specimens survived in remote villages where the inhabitants valued them for the partly mythical qualities attributed to them: Because of its special appearance, four-legged creatures were said to have a healing effect on certain diseases, for example, bone and joint diseases.

In 1985, the world's largest dog breeding organization, the Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI), recognized the Peruvian Hairless Dog as an independent race. So today there are officially three breeds of naked dogs. Besides of Peruvian Hairless Dog, these are the Mexican Naked Dog, also known by the beautiful name of “Xoloitzcuintle“, and the Chinese Crested Dog. The three races are closely related to each other.

Physical characteristics

The name says it all: The most striking thing about most Peruvian Hairless Dog that's what's missing: the coat. However, the standard allows for some locks on the head and tail even in naked dogs without hair. Skin can be light or dark in different shades of color, smooth or white-spotted. However, not all naked dogs are naked, because there's a variant with hair: the so-called “Furry”, that are indispensable for breeding for health reasons. About a third of naked dogs belong to this group.

From 2013 hairy variants can also be seen in canine exhibitions, since they have been added to the standard. Your hair should be short and soft, all colors are allowed. The Peruvian Hairless Dog reminds the greyhounds in their physique. This slender breed of dog has large erect ears that can rest back, an elegantly curved and hanging tail and an athletic complexion.

Naked dog lovers can enjoy three size variations:

– The small version has a shoulder height of 25 a 40 cm..
– The median 40 a 50 cm..
– The Greats Peruvian Hairless Dog have between 50 and 65 height cm.

Weight varies as a result of 4 a 25 kg. Only a few Peruvian Hairless Dog have a full denture, but these usually include all representatives of the furry variant.

Character and skills

The Peruvian Hairless Dog is a friendly and adaptable companion. He prefers to be with his human with the one who has a close relationship. It belongs to very sociable dogs. He likes to integrate into a family and quickly befriends other pets and children. It is said that many Peruvian Hairless Dog protect fervently, especially the women and children of the herd. Here it is important to be careful when visiting the children that the Peruvian interprets offensive situations for his protégé and rushes to help his little two-legged friend without needing.

Vivacious and curious, is a wonderful companion for outdoor activities, but behaves calmly and relaxed inside. He especially likes to get comfortable on his owner's lap and enjoys the closeness and warmth. To strangers he is often distant and alert, but not aggressive.

Education

Like a dog of the original type, the Peruvian Hairless Dog it also provides original behavior in the man-animal relationship. That's why it makes sense in educational matters if you already have any experience with dogs. However, even ambitious beginners can successfully train a Peruvian Hairless Dog. Clear rules and consistency are, as in most dogs, the key to success.

The Peruvian Hairless Dog is a sensitive four-legged friend – hard you'll only get the opposite with it – will retire. Some Peruvian Hairless Dog tend to get scared or fear new situations. Therefore, it is especially important to train this dog extensively and at the right pace to different situations without overloading it.

Your breeder will be able to give you some advice when you buy a puppy. Whether on a train journey, on a trip to the city center or on a visit home, introduce your partner into these everyday situations since you're a puppy. Regular training at a canine school, preferably already with the young puppy in the form of playgroups for puppies, is highly recommended and also reinforces the social side of the Peruvian Hairless Dog.

Aging of the Peruvian Hairless Dog

As already mentioned, during mating a special health characteristic must be taken into account: During breeding, the furry ones, namely, hairy representatives of the breed, should be crossed regularly. The reason for this is that the dominant allele of hairlessness can only lead to viable embryos in combination with a hair allele, namely, Heterozygosity. Hairless homozygotic embryos are already reabsorbed into the uterus. As pure breeding for lack of hair is therefore not possible, hairless naked dogs also occur over and over again.

The Peruvian Hairless Dog they usually have an incomplete denture, what doesn't usually restrict them. With light-skinned specimens, especially at the beginning of summer, it's important to make sure they get used slowly in the sunlight, then tanning. Sun protection also makes sense, because otherwise dogs can develop severe sunburn, especially when they like to go to sunny places. Also in winter some specimens need climate protection in the form of a dog coat, because if they can't run, cool down quickly during the normal walk. Smaller variants of the breed are more sensitive to this than larger ones.

A Peruvian Hairless Dog can reach an age of up to 15 years.

Care

With the naked representatives of the breed you can leave the comb with confidence. In addition, has the great advantage that it can normally detect parasites in the skin of the Peruvian Hairless Dog immediately and apply the appropriate antidotes – from tick tweezers to flea repellent. However, even the Peruvian Hairless Dog needs regular care. If required – some owners recommend once a week – wash it with a sponge and a gentle dog shampoo. Some Peruvian Hairless Dog tend to have dry skin, which can be remedied with soft moisturizers for fragrance-free babies or with olive or coconut oil. In summer, sunscreen is an indispensable tool for light-colored dogs. Cut the claws of your Peruvian Hairless Dog if they get too long and clean your four-legged friend's ears with a dog ear cleaner if necessary.

Buy a Peruvian Hairless Dog

The Peruvian Hairless Dog are rare in Europe and therefore breeders are rare. Find the right umbrella organizations in your country, that can help you in your search. In Germany, for example, club f'r Exotische Rassehunde e.V. has a list of breeders, switzerland has a “Swiss Naked Dog Club of Latin America”, which is dedicated to the promotion of the two breeds of dogs: the Xoloitzcuintle and the Peruvian Hairless Dog. In these clubs and similar ones you can find information and contacts of ambitious breeders. Considering possible adoptions across national borders, consider what to consider when adopting puppies from abroad.

As a fan of naked dogs, you probably know the closely related races, the Xoloitzcuintle and the Chinese Crested Dog – maybe one of these dogs might also be an option for you and you're more likely to be in your region. In addition, openness to the other two races, as well as the crosses, it's usually a good idea if you want to give a home to a naked older dog. This usually requires some research. But in the meantime, keywords such as “naked dogs in distress” on the Internet promise successes that lead naked adult dogs to look for a new place to live. Try to find out as much as possible about the story of your potential new fourth-legged partner.

Pyrenean Mountain Dog

The Pyrenean mountain dog is a guardian and protector with territorial claims.

Content

History

The Pyrenean Mountain Dog is an ancient watchdog of the mountainous world of the Pyrenees. There it is officially called Chien de Montagne des Pyrénées. The people of the Pyrenees call him the cute little one Patou. The pyrenees, like a vast, deserted and rugged, previously inaccessible mountain range, form the natural border between France and Spain. Here there were and there are wolves and bears, with the consequent problem for ranchers. In addition, sheep used to be one of the few livelihoods of the people here. While in Germany and other Central European countries people mourn the return of the wolf and complain about the damage caused to hunting and herds of sheep, in the Pyrenees dogs such as the Patou from time immemorial. And there are no complaints. Guard dogs are an integral part of every flock of sheep in the Pyrenees mountains.

On the French side, they are officially called Chien de Montagne des Pyrénées or Pyrenäenberghund, on the Spanish side Perro de montaña de los Pirineos or Gran Pirineo. In addition to protecting herds against thieves, wolves and bears, also protected the great properties. His powerful figure, his determination and ability to attack in an emergency were not without effect. The impression must have been so long-lasting that his work was already documented in writings of antiquity and the Middle Ages. Dogs reportedly would have recognized people from afar for their clothing. In 1391 it is said that the Count of Foix did a test. If he came dressed as a tramp, the dogs attacked him from afar without hesitation. If he came dressed as an earl, he wasn't bothered.

The Patou was not a uniform race in the past. In the very remote valleys there were often local races, genetically isolated, optimized for your job task naturally, but in the end the same dogs came out with a very similar appearance and character, although they could have been genetically separated for generations. Extremely harsh living conditions obviously outweighed the disadvantages of inbreeding. Modern pedigree dog breeding became interested in these impressive dogs very soon. Already at the first dog show in France, in 1863, a separate class was established for the Pyrenean Mountain Dog.

An attempt was made to establish the Patou also outside the Pyrenees as a watchdog and protection. In 1907 the first standard was established in France. However, due to the two world wars and the associated famine, the population of Patou outside the mountains suffered serious setbacks. In 1955 obtained the official recognition of the FCI – Fédération Cynologique Internationale.

Physical characteristics

The Pyrenean Mountain Dog is a big dog, imposing, powerful and at the same time athletic and agile. Doesn't seem clumsy or massive, but rather elegant piecework. It has a medium length coat, very dense and flexible, which can be slightly wavy. The bottom layer is also very dense. To the colors that the official standard says:

White or white with gray spots (badger gray or wolf gray), pale yellow or orange (rusty) in the head, ears and base of tail, sometimes also in the body.

The Pyrenean Mountain Dog it has a majestic height at the withers 70 and 80 centimeters in males and of 65 a 75 in females. The weight must be between 60 and 70 kg. The measurements are quite similar to those taken by the Conde de Bylandt when he first described the breed in 1897, when he just called the dogs “Chien des Pyréneés“. The head of the Patou remember the contours of a molosser. Shows a very alert and attentive facial expression. It is a dog that rests on itself, who first of all observes everything, seemingly listless. This is underlined by his eyes, they're supposed to be sweet and dreamy, with its dark amber color.

Character and skills

The Pyrenean Mountain Dog is a guardian and protector with territorial claims. He looks cute and calm looking, sublime and imposing almost like a blank teddy bear, but you must not be wrong. It has a strong character combined with a very own but clear idea of ​​how it should behave – and the others in their domain. This idea is naturally shaped by its use throughout the centuries, where he had to defend his flock to life or death as a guard without the presence of the shepherd and, therefore, had to make decisions independently. The official standard classifies his character qualities as follows:

Since the dog was used exclusively to protect herds against attacks by predators, his selection for breeding was based on his suitability as a keeper, their respectable appearance and also their relationship with the herd. The resulting characteristics are strength and agility, as well as the sweetness and attachment to their protégés. This watchdog has a tendency to independence and initiative, which requires some authority from his master.

A Pyrenean Mountain Dog should only be held by an experienced and mentally strong person. First of all, not a family dog. However, it can become so if you have extremely competent guidance from your master or caretaker and if the external conditions are right. Only then can he be a good family dog ​​and lovingly protect all members of the family., including other four-legged friends. In addition, is a good guardian and extremely reliable protector of the house and all those who, in your opinion -which should be clarified-, belong to it. Towards strangers he is suspicious.

Attitude

The Pyrenean Mountain Dog it is extremely undemanding in its maintenance – if one ignores the aforementioned restrictions due to its nature as a watchdog. It is undemanding in its nutrition as well as in its accommodation. You can spend the whole year outside without problems – as long as you have a suitable hiding place and “suitable” does not mean neither kennel nor chain, because he must be able to move in his territory. This large, self-confident dog is quite sensitive and attaches great importance to a close emotional bond with his human family.. You need a trusting relationship with your master or caregiver.

Thanks to modern pedigree dog breeding, the Patou is better prepared for a big city life than other herd protection dog breeds like the Kangal or the Central Asian Shepherd Dog. So if you have a large, well-fenced property in the country, if you have joy, fun, experience and the possibility of getting involved with these dogs, you can experience a particularly impressive and beautiful facet of the human-dog association.

Pyrenean Mountain Dog Education

The education of Pyrenean Mountain Dog belongs to the hands of a teacher or lover with deep experience and canine knowledge. Like any other race, Pyrenean mountain dogs must be well socialized and educated since they are puppies. It would be irresponsible to want to keep a dog as well as a beginner.

Care and health of the Pyrenean Mountain Dog

Absolutely easy to care for and undemanding. The Pyrenean Mountain Dog generally enjoys very robust health. Some health problems may include hip dysplasia; heart problems like dysplasia of the tricuspid valve; cancers like osteosarcoma (bone cancer); eye problems such as persistent pupil membranes, progressive retinal atrophy and cataracts; dissecting osteochondritis (an orthopedic problem), patellar dislocation (dislocation of the patella) and swelling.

Dogo Canario

Their aggressiveness should not be excessively stimulated. It is an optimal guardian and defender without the need for training.

Content

History

The Dogo Canario It is a classic moloso. It is the offspring of an ancient and in this ancient form it is only rarely found in Central Europe today.. It has many names: Presa Canario, Perro de Presa, Perro de Toro, Alano o Presa Canario. Dogs of the current type Dogo Canario existed still ago 200 years everywhere. They were the old saupackers, bear teethers, guard dogs, butcher dogs, the ancestors of the current great danes, bulldogs, boxers and mastiffs. They are extremely strong and bulky dogs, that even today are summarized as molossi. They were raised in ancient times and have always been highly appreciated. They were used on large farms, with livestock herds or for example on merchant ships such as guard and protection dogs, served as herding dogs and as hunting dogs for boars or bears. They served rulers like Hammurabi as war dogs, they had them carved in stone in full recognition does 3700 years.

Due to its strength, courage and determination, have been used as fighting dogs in the arenas of animal fighting since Roman times. Molossians have a commanding head with a rather short snout and long lips.. The ears are usually worn hanging. According to the traditions of antiquity in words and images, the main characteristics of the molosser have remained essentially the same for thousands of years, but in recent centuries and especially due to modern dog breeding, the classic type of molosser has been lost to some extent. In extreme cases strange shapes have been bred with many extremely short folds or snouts such as bulldogs or giants like him Great Dane or the Mastiff. The Dog is still raised in his homeland only for his performance at work.

Therefore, chances are that the Dogo Canario still embody the type Molosoide as was common in the old days. It is clearly recognized as trotting, but he does not suffer from cultivated exaggerations of any bodily characteristics or traits. You can only hope it stays that way. Unfortunately, breeders are very much at odds with Dogo Canario. They haven't even managed to agree on a name and a registry office. From 1991 has been officially considered as “The Canary Presa Dog” among the natural symbols of the Canary Islands. Meanwhile in 2001 the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture recognized these dogs as a national breed also under the name of Dogo Canario, the same dogs were then provisionally recognized as Dogo Canario by the world federation FCI in 2001 and finally in 2011. Other names are Perro de Presa y Alano. Alano It is an old word that means Great Dane.

Physical characteristics

The Dogo Canario, Perro de Presa, Perro de Toro, Alano o Presa Canario – all designations for the same four-legged friend – he is an elegant dog that radiates athletic power. He is an athletic, muscular, elongated but nevertheless typical molosser.

The skull-muzzle ratio is approximately 6:4. The upper lip rests a little flaccidly on the lower one. The eyes, medium-sized, they are oval and hazelnut, the ears, high, they are separated from each other and are shaped like a button; they are only amputated to remember their original role as a fighting dog. The neck, long and muscular, shows a slight dewlap. The tail is implanted high: thick at the base, is tuned to the extreme. The belly is retracted, but the last ribs stand out only slightly, giving a harmonious harp shape. Limbs are sturdy, muscular and perfectly plumb; angulation of the hind limbs is not very marked.

The difference between male and female bulldogs desired by the FCI standard is therefore unnaturally large. Anyway, desires of this standard for outward appearance should not be taken so seriously.

Because fortunately this originally preserved dog breed, robust and healthy has set its standard “By herself”, more exactly for their performance at work, and has kept it in the practice of life until today. People, who now wants to put it in a modern pedigree breeding dog standard, don't even agree to the principle, as we can see in its history of the breed. Modern pedigree dog breeding has not done any dog ​​breed any good, both in terms of health and character. In old times, the Bulldog fitted with pleasure to the ears, so that they protruded upwards. This is now prohibited. Today they show big ears hanging down.

  • Hair: short, without Undercoat, pretty hard.
  • Color: leonado or atigrado. The tabby specimens have a wide range of colors, from the very dark ones to a quite cold tone light gray.
  • Size: males, of 61 a 66 cm.; females, of 57 a 62 cm..

Character

The Dogo Canario is a quiet dog, balanced and self-confident. He is a powerful and defensive athlete who can show his performance at any time. Like all molossi, he is extremely kind, have strong nerves and a high stimulus threshold. However, he is more anxious to move and not as lethargic as most molossi bred today only as companions. A Dogo Canario well socialized is friendly to people who know and like children. It is very sociable. Towards strangers is at first a little distant without fear. He is an incorruptible guardian, fearless and protective of his family without being aggressive by himself. The FCI standard describes the character desired by the breed:

Calm appearance; alert look. It is especially suitable as a watchdog… His temperament is balanced and he has a lot of self-confidence. Deep barking. He is docile and kind to his family members and with strong ties to his master, but you may suspect strangers. Self-confident behavior, elegant and somewhat distant. When you are alert, his attitude is confident and alert.

It must be added that the Dogo Canario rarely barks. But if it barks once, it's pretty awesome.

Attitude

The Dogo Canario is undemanding in terms of external conditions. Of course: a small apartment in the big city would not be optimal for your attitude. But other than that it's easy to maintain. It is also a working dog, a guard, a driver, a hunting dog for hunting wild boars. The Dogo Canario it is suitable as a family dog ​​only on the condition that it is well socialized, well educated and physically fit. You also have to take into account a fact: It is considered a “dangerous dog” in many countries.

Presa Canario Education

The Dogo Canario can be trained well, but it's not a beginner dog yet. It is intelligent, very sociable and eager to work. But at the same time he is very powerful and assertive. In case of doubt, always the strongest end of the strap. Therefore, his master or caretaker must not leave doubts about his role as leader and this on the basis of natural authority. Then this dog will gladly leave the main role to his bipeds without reservation. But it must be filled. The Dogo Canario it is even suitable for demanding tasks such as training as an assistance or protection dog. The basic requirement is that it comes from a serious breeder and has already been socialized there.

    During the 17th century, the Puli almost lost as a breed due to crossbreeding with sheepdogs from France and Germany. In 1912, a program was started to revive the breed. In 1915 A breed standard was drafted and approved by the (FCI) International Cynological Federation in 1924. The dogs had made their first appearance at a Budapest dog show a year earlier and were divided into three classes.: of work, exposure and dwarf. In 1934 breed standard was revised and dogs were divided by height: large, medium and dwarf. An inscription of 1935 in the Hungarian genealogical book he points out four sizes: large (Police), medium- (work), small and dwarf. Medium size was the most popular.
