What mix produces a hairless Pug?
If you've never heard of a hairless Pug, then you aren't the only one.
One TikToker asked the question that was on everyone's mind: "Is he a pug/hairless mix or is it a genetic anomaly? He’s super cute either way!"
"Xolo and pug, rescued off the streets in Mexico," Natalino D'Amato replied.
"Xolo" is short for Xoloitzcuintli, which, according to the American Kennel Club's website. Xolos were the "ancient Aztec dog of the gods" and today the animal is "a loving companion and vigilant watchdog." The dog comes in three sizes and can be either haired or hairless.
You can definitely see the traits of both breeds in this hairless hound.
It's grumpy and adorable, and after all this attention, the internet's latest dog influencer!
