Don’t let the crazy name fool you, the Xoloitzcuintli (sometimes referred to as “Xolo”) is often described as loyal, alert, calm and trainable. Because they are wary of strangers, they make for excellent watchdogs. Xolos do enjoy long walks and upbeat play, but they’re also known to be super calm indoors. Many Xolos are hairless, while others have a short, flat coat.
