Dog breeds Group 5 - Section 6 FCI - Primitive Type.

In the section 6 you will find breeds of dogs whose origin is very ancient.

Today, all remaining primitive-type dogs are more or less small compared to their Indian Wolf parents. Scientists believe that this evolutionary change has been caused by ecological and environmental factors in their habitats.. Some of the oldest dog breeds evolved partially through self-domestication. These dogs, as the Pharaoh Hound or the Canaan Dog, maintained their natural appearance and habits until now. Other, as the Basenji or the Peruvian Hairless Dog, that are of the same origin, have been drastically altered by the human factor in their breeding process. Surprisingly, some of these wild dogs, as the New Guinea Singing Dog and the Dingo, are still in an early stage of domestication. During its long history, These primitive breeds of dog have generally been used for hunting and surveillance. Although these dogs evolved in many ways, they had some things in common. They are distant, sensitive, alert and independent. However, they are usually easy to train with the proper approach. In addition, note that these dogs are not used to cold weather.

The FCI ⓘ (Federation Cynologique Internationale) recognize 337 races and each is ‘property’ from a specific country, where it had its origin. All of them are included in 10 Groups under a registration number, a section number and a group number.

  1. you're all right. your data, Pet. lack of information, and only poorly report to those who want to know the xolo. very bad reporter.

  2. Hello friends of pets. sorry that contradict them but to make an article such as this should be better informed the XOLOITZCUINTI has nothing to do with the hopi culture or with such God you oppose and another thing, I don't know the American hairless terrier but it is false to be the only breed with a recessive gene is precisely for this reason that the XOLO lacks hair and some teeth, because it has a “dominant recessive gene” giving you that feature check please website of the Mexican Canine Federation there is correct about the race information so that they do not confuse people.
