The main characteristic that marks this dog is the lack of hair on most of its body.
Its origin is very ancient. The meat of the Xoloitzcuintle or Xoloitzcuintli in Nahuatl language, was considered a delicacy in Pre-Hispanic Mexico. Which the Mexican Indians ate in special ceremonies as a ritual to their beliefs. And was considered as the representative of the God “Xolotl” from where its name comes from.

This is a breed that is currently extinct. It is known to be a direct ancestor of the Chihuahua dog. Its appearance was very similar to the current breed, but with a longer coat and a more elongated spine. In behavior, they were very calm and docile. In addition, they were companion dogs and were used for light work.

Calupoh Dog or Mexican Wolf Dog

The Calupoh dog is the most unknown of all the breeds mentioned here. Although its origin is not recent, traces of this breed have been found in Teotihuacan. It is not common to see one in the street or to have an acquaintance who owns a specimen. The reason for this is that it is a breed that has recently recovered and can be considered as a hybrid between a dog and the gray wolf.
Its origin occurred naturally as a result of crossbreeding between wolves and dogs that shared a territory. It is the largest dog of the three Mexican breeds that currently exist. With a size that reaches up to 75 cm and a black coat that gives it a certain resemblance to that of wolves. Its docile character makes it a companion dog.
