The Peruvian Hairless Dog

A first for Riviera Dogs...this is a breed called the Peruvian Hairless Dog. As you can see he is completely hairless save for a few coarse hairs on his face.

He's called Estrello and is 5 months old. These photos were taken just at the beginning of the Corbusier walk from Cap Martin to Monaco.

Do click on the photo below to enlarge it and really see his skin which his owner likened to an elephant's skin.

Oh no ! This does not meet my definition of "dog". A "dog" has nice soft cuddly fur... this creature does not, and is therefore not a dog. Well, maybe, but it must take some getting used to. Perhaps sort of like when a man goes bald, finally one accepts them without hair too...

I have seen these dogs called a Mexican Hairless Jilly.
Saves on grooming :)
