Peruvian Hairless Dog

El Peruvian Hairless Dog es un compañero amigable y adaptable.

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.

History

The Canaan Dog belong to the group of “pariah dog”, found throughout the Afro-Asian region. They live near human settlements, tolerated by humans, but they are not encouraged or fed. For primitive peoples they are useful as a destroyer of all organic waste. Even today, the Canaan Dog they live in herds in the desert. If Bedouins need a guard dog for their camp or a herding dog for their sheep, They look for a wild female who raises her cubs in a cave, they throw a piece of bread at him every now and then until they have chosen the strongest male cub that will guard their camp in the future.

Cynologically, the “pariah dog” belong to the Spitz family, the oldest family of dogs in the world. Thousands of years old rock paintings show these dogs as hunting helpers. With the time, the original type of Spitz adapted to the situation of its environment. The Canaan Dog is the most developed form of the type Spitz in Israel today. The Canaan dogs still have strong survival instincts, what makes them smart, independent and also very cautious dogs.

The Canaan breed has been domesticated by outcast wild dogs, namely, by Rudolphina Menzel, a canine behaviorist and cynologist who emigrated from Vienna to Palestine in the 1930. He took some of them home and was amazed at how easily they were tamed and trained. They were lively and loving. The teacher Menzel I call them Canaan dogs honoring the biblical land of Canaan and campaigned for them to be recognized as a race.

Standing ears, slightly laterally arranged, triangular and wide, as well as his dark almond eyes, give you a very alert and intelligent expression. In fact, nothing escapes the watchman Canaan Dog, even when asleep.

Character and skills Canaan Dog

The relationship with its owner means for him a partnership, both sides taking and giving. The Canaan Dog you don't have to follow your owner everywhere and submissively read every wish in his eyes. There are times when he shows his love and wants to be caressed. But other times he takes care of his own affairs and only belongs to himself. If one responds to his character, a deep understanding develops between man and animal, which is even more attractive, since one must acquire their trust and affection. This special bond makes it difficult to place Canaan Dog adults in new settings.

Loyalty to his master and his quick understanding make him, despite its independence, an easy-to-handle dog, who can learn the necessary basic obedience without restrictions.

Shikoku

Shikoku

Less stubborn than the other Spitz breeds, the Shikoku, he is very little known outside his native land, Japan

Content

History

Ceramic figures from Japan that show representations of dogs have been preserved since ancient times, that look like this Japanese breed. The current breed dates back to crosses with the now extinct inu Japanese. The original field of application of these dogs was hunting, more precisely hunting in the prefecture of Kochi on isla de Shikoku – that is why the race is sometimes called “perro Kochi“. However, name Tosa-Inu, which is used in part in Japan, it's misleading, because under the name “Tosa” there is also another japanese race. In addition, three varieties of Shikoku, that were named according to the respective region in which they live: pity, Hongawa and Hata. How the Hongawa region was the most difficult to access in the past, This variety is considered to be the least modified by other influences and the closest to the ideal of Shikoku. Today, the Shikoku It is considered the national dog of Japan along with the Akita.

Shikoku physical characteristics

The typical silhouette Spitz characterizes the Shikoku: It has relatively small, erect ears and a compact body. The tail is well placed and curled over the back. This medium-sized breed with a height at the withers of about 53 cm is located between the Akita bigger and the Shiba Inu smallest within the Japanese family Spitz. For many lay people in Europe this four-legged friend also reminds of a dog that is seen much more often here., the Siberian Husky. The Shikoku coat can be black sesame or white sesame. The dense coat consists, as is typical in type dogs Spitz, on a long, hard top coat over a soft, dense undercoat.

Shikoku character and abilities

Shikoku

The loyalty, intelligence and a certain stubbornness form the character of this dog with an agile nature. He is vigilant and behaves in a neutral manner to the point of distancing himself from strangers. When they meet conspecifics, conflicts can occur, particularly with males, because the Shikoku tend to dominate. As a hunting dog it is characterized by its corresponding sharpness.

His original behavior can also be seen in his dealings with people – he likes to lick his reference persons and seeks physical contact. Sometimes shows a conspicuous preference for unpleasant odors from the human point of view. The Shikoku He is very agile and likes to be outdoors – however impetuous I am moving here, a Shikoku busy behaves calmly and pleasantly indoors, where he appreciates quiet hours and pampering. Although he is a stubborn dog, not as strong as the other races of Spitz from Japan. However: The special character of Spitz not suitable for all dog lovers.

Shikoku Care

The coat of this Japanese hunting dog is robust and easy to care for, but it must be brushed regularly, especially during coat change twice a year. advice: If you brush your dog every day during this time, will greatly reduce hair loss at home and also shorten the “hairy phase” In a few days. Outside these few weeks of the year, cleaning every few days is enough. Check your ears right now too, so you can clean them with a dog ear cleaner if needed. You must bathe your dog very rarely, at most every few months, and then use a mild dog shampoo. However, it makes sense to get the puppy used to bathing. However, it is usually sufficient to simply remove the dried dirt from the coat. Check the length of the claws – especially with older dogs – to shorten claws that are too long with special pliers. This is how injuries are prevented.

Shikoku Education

If he Shikoku respect his two-legged pack leader as a wise and just leader, will gladly follow your instructions. However, first you need to earn the respect of this dog. Be consistent and bring some tolerance to the small, thick skull of this four-legged friend, that will never be completely subordinate.

Screaming or harshness will not help you and will destroy your relationship with this loyal companion.. A thorough knowledge of dog training is needed to direct the dominance and hunting instinct of dogs. Shikoku in regular courses. Please, keep in mind that only a well-trained breed of dog can make a well-behaved friend, otherwise you will look for another job.

Attending classes with dog trainers in general can be of great benefit, so that the Shikoku that tends to dominate, get stronger in social affairs and learn to get along with other dogs. Male dogs in particular may face challenges that need to be countered from the age of the puppy. So don't underestimate the importance of the socialization phase., because any omission can only be corrected with difficulty.

Shikoku Health

These robust dogs are considered tough and persistent. They hardly have a genetic disposition for disease, if the breeding is done responsibly. It goes without saying that you should only buy puppies from a reputable breeder who belongs to a club. The breeder will give you competent information about the care of your animal and show you the corresponding tests. In good health, Shikoku reaches an average age of about 13 years.

Where can i find my Shikoku?

The breed is one of the very rare breeds outside of Japan. As a result, find a puppy of Shikoku it can be difficult if you have decided to have one as a new member of the family. But don't despair, because there are a handful of serious breeders in Europe who are dedicated to this breed. The first official litter outside of Japan was in 2000 in the Netherlands, where the breeders of Shikoku continue to regularly deliver litters to responsible hands. However, you may have to accept a longer trip before you can give your puppy a hug from Shikoku. No matter how rare the breed is, don't reduce the demands you can and should make on serious parenting. Learn about puppy care, of your health, ask the breeders and ask them to show you the appropriate tests, for example, in connection with exams for hip dysplasia. Of course, the breeder must also belong to a club. Will be happy to give you some good advice, but in return you will also have some questions to see if you can offer a good home to one of your protégés.
