The Definitive Guide To American Hairless Terrier Dogs
A descendant of rat terriers and other small, tenacious breeds bred to hunt vermin in their dens, these dogs are curious, highly intelligent, and tenacious with a stubborn streak that requires some rigorous training to curb. They aren’t actually without hair, but their fine, short coat makes them unsuited to rugged hunting environments. Rather, they make excellent sports competition dogs, because they are high-energy, perky, and pugnacious.
