           Xolos con Pelo / Coated Xolos

 

 Hermanos con pelo y sin pelo. Siblings: coated and hairless.

La raza xoloitzcuintle es ampliamente conocida por carecer de pelaje, aunque puede presentarse un poco de pelo en cabeza, patas y cola. Sin embargo, en la gran mayoría de las camadas nacen cachorros con pelaje completo. Estos cachorros constituyen la variedad con pelo de esta raza. La existencia de esta variedad se remonta al periodo prehispánico. No obstante, durante el siglo XX existió la práctica de eliminar a los cachorros con pelo al momento de nacer, generando la idea errónea de su inexistencia. El xoloitzcuintle con pelo posee la misma pureza racial y cualidades que la contraparte desnuda de la raza. A paritr de 2007 el xoloitzcuintle con pelo ha sido aceptado de manera oficial. El xolo con pelo se presenta en todos los colores y sus combinaciones.

Desde el principio, en Ámatl Xolos hemos respetado la vida de los cachorros con pelo y hemos apoyado su reconocimiento.

The xoloitzcuintle breed is widely known because it lacks coat, however, some hair may be present in head, paws and tail. Even so, in most litters a number of fully coated puppies appears. These puppies constitute the coated variety of the breed. The existence of such variety is dated back to the precolumbian period. However, during the 20th century the common practice was to eliminate these puppies at birth, creating the incorrect idea of their non-existence. The coated xolo has the same breed pureness and qualities as the hairless counterpart. In 2007 the coated xoloitzcuintle became officially accepted. The coated xolo presents all colors and combination of colors.

 

Since the beginning in Ámatl Xolos we have respected the life of coated puppies and supported their recognition.
