The Xoloitzcuintle come in a variety of colors, but are usually black or charcoal gray, and almost always solid.
A dog can only shed as much hair as they have, so that makes the Mexican Hairless a non-shedding dog. The coated variety sheds minimally
Grooming a Mexican Hairless is...you guessed it - pretty minimal. Like you, these dogs do need sunscreen in the summer, however, so don't forget the SPF.
The Xoloitzcuintle are alert barkers. As with any dog, they can be discouraged from barking as frequently with proper training and exercise
Xoloitzcuintles are best with older children, with whom they can match their energy for play and also guard them as though they're their own children.
As with any breed, it is recommended that your child is always supervised when interacting with your Xoloitzcuintle to keep both the child and dog safe.
