Dog breeds Group 5 - Section 6 of the FCI – Primitive type.

Dog breeds Group 5

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 of 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. But, they are usually easy to train with the proper approach. It also, keep in mind that these dogs are not used to cold weather.

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

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

  2. Hello friends of pets. Excuse me for contradicting you, but to write an article like this, you should be better informed. The XOLOITZCUINTI has nothing to do with the Hopi culture or with this god you oppose and something else., I do not know the American Hairless Terrier but it is false that it is the only breed with a recessive gene since that is precisely why the XOLO lacks hair and some teeth, because it has a “dominant recessive gene” What gives it this characteristic? Please check the page of the Mexican Canophytic Federation, there is correct information about the breed so that people are not confused..

    • Hello Tigra78, mz well expressed with rayon z….
