Hairless dogs

There are three recognized breeds of hairless dog today: the Chinese crested Dog, the Mexican hairless dog, and the Peruvian hairless dog (the cutie pictured here is a Peruvian). But there are several other varieties of hairless dogs that have yet to be officially recognized.

They might be hairless, but they still enjoy a good rub as much as the next dog, and they're perfect for pet owners with allergies.
