Speaking of dogs, I have a dozen of them boxed up. I'm just waiting on a shipping address. I sent you a PM days ago.

Didn't know there was a hairless version of a chihuahua. I know there is a hairless rat terrier.

The Xolo or Mexican Hairless Dog was actually bred to sleep with people to keep them warm in the rare cold spells in Mexico and to act like hot water bottles or heating pads to treat aches and pains. The dog's 106F body temperature feels good against sore body parts, like backs. The heat transfers better without fur. It's easier to clean bare skin. It's also to keep the hairless dogs free of parasites, like fleas.

So you're telling me a hiarless dog has more body heat than a dog with hair?
Something just doesn't add up here!

Not at all, just that the heat transfers easier from bare dog skin to bare human skin. Fur is insulative and does not transfer heat well.

Yup, that's why one field expedient treatment for hypothermia is stripping down the victim and one or two volunteers naked and stuffing them into a fart sack. Skin to skin heat transfer.

But the normal body temp of a dog is 101.5

I don't have a hairless , but I have a chihuahua

for 3-4 bites of food from your plate a day , you have a Mayan security dog. ready to bark at anything that darkens your door step.

I would guess that they were handy for alerting there was a snake near by so you could deal with it.

He's saying the heat transfers better from the hairless Chihuahua than a dog with hair..just like a mans bald head loses heat faster than one with hair.

The hair of a haired dog acts as insulation to slow heat dispersal on a haired dog. That insulation is missing on the hairless breed which allows for more heat being shed dispersed.

Thats why a bald man wear's a hat and a bald dog wears a sweater.

It adds up nicely.

I had a friend when I was younger whoís sister had one and it was always cold except for hot summer days, but the little bugger was fearless and would charge the devil himself if he threatened her, personally I feel they are more delicate and require more careful handling then larger dogs

If you havenít hear of them you might look into the American hairless terrier their not as delicate as the Mexican hairless and are loyal and protective of their people, I have a friend that has one for the same reason he loves dogs but is highly allergic to dander, itís his constant companion and the only downside I can see is itís not A hunting dog
Outside of that it ticks all the boxes of what a good dog should be

Essentially itís a mutation of the rat terrier where a puppy was born hairless and used to develop a hairless strand of the breed, they are pretty much carefree except for an occasional bath and ear cleaning and maybe a sweeter when it get real cold but thatís more for long trips outside in the cold, my friends actually prefers not to wear one even in really cold Minnesota weather, my friend thought forces him to wear one on real cold days or if their going on long walks

I donít know about costs but they should be comparable to a Mexican hairless

I have a small dog right now, first one....10lbs.

It's very cold blooded so I'm guessing a small dog without hair would be as bad or worse. I wouldn't have one for that reason alone where I live.
