The origins of the very ancient breed are hotly debated. The Peruvian Hairless dog may have been brought to Peru by Chinese inmigrants from Asia to the Americas via the Bering Strait. Other believe he comes from Africa. Nevertheless, there is irrefutable evidence- including representations on the dog on pottery- that the breed has inhabited Peru for many centuries and existed even before the Inkas. The peruvian hairless dogs was once the favorite pet of Inka royalty. He is now rare in his native country. The breed comes in three sizes with fairly similar body structure.

Lively, alert and fast, this calm, intelligent, affectionate dog is a good pet. He is distrusting of strangers and therefore makes a good watchdog.This dogs don't like to be alone, but when trained, can do well. Is an indoor dog, he cannot tolerate bright sunlight and cold temperatures. His skin must be rubbed with a moisturizer. The lack of hair leads to a reputation for being easy to wash with a sponge. The ears needs special attention. The rims of the ears can dry out and chap easily.
The peruvian hairless dog is both odorless and flealess. Its soft, warm skin is considered "therapeutic".

According to the FCI breed standard, the most important aspect of its appearance is its hairlessnes. The dog may have short hair on top of its head, on its feet, and on the tip of its tail. In Peru, breeders tend to prefer completely hairless dogs. The full-coated variety is not recognize as a valid breed variation for show dogs.The color of the skin can be chocolate-brown, elephant-grey, cooper or mottled. Albinism is not allowed. The eyed color is linked to the skin color. It's always brown, but dogs with colors can have clearer eyes than darker-skinned dogs.
The genes that cause hairlessnes also result in the breed often having fewer teeth than other breeds, mostly lacking molars and premolars.

Letting the dog "hug" you is supossed to help with stomach pain,asthma, and other disorders, according to Peruvian folklore.
