Learn about Xoloitzcuintli Pet Insurance

The Xoloitzcuintli is an ancient dog of the gods. The breed is believed to have existed for about 3,000 years and they are known to be loving companions and wonderful watchdogs. The breed is commonly nicknamed “Xolo” or “Xolito” and they could come in either the hairless or the coated variety. While the coated is covered with a short and flat coat, the hairless has a smooth, tough and close-fitting skin.

Xolo comes in three sizes: toy, miniature, and standard. While the toy stands no more than 14 inches and weighs no more than 15 pounds, the miniature stands up to 18 inches and weighs up to 30 pounds. The standards are the largest; they stand up to 23 inches at the shoulder and weigh up to 55 pounds.

This breed is unlike any other. They are natural breeds; in other words, the breed was not created by crossing any other breeds, rather, it is believed that they are a result of a spontaneous genetic mutation. If you own a canine that belongs to this breed, you should treasure it.

However, like any other breed, it is also important to take out Xoloitzcuintli pet insurance as soon as you purchase or adopt your dog to protect it against pet-related medical expenses which may include the cost of hospitalization, accident, illness, injuries, diagnostic tests, emergency care, surgeries, and so forth.

Before taking out Xoloitzcuintli pet insurance, pet owners should research various policy options to choose the best coverage for their furry friend. This is a unique and rare breed and so you may not find a lot of companies providing the type of coverage you are looking for. This is why you need to be meticulous to choose the right coverage for your pet.

Xoloitzcuintli Pet Insurance News

A young medical student from the Philippines, Sandra Pineda adopted a 2-month-old Xoloitzcuintli puppy named Piper.

Because she’s in love with her new best friend, she shared the dog’s photo online and she could not believe the reaction it got.

Within one hour the photo got more than 10,000 likes and thousands of comments. The reason? Piper is a Xoloitzcuintli or a Mexican hairless dog. According to Sandra, most people mistake the awesome-looking dog for a statue.

The dog looks less like an actual breathing or living animal and more like an object cast in bronze.

The American Kennel Club says that the breed comes in three sizes – toy, miniature and standard – and two varieties – hairless and coated.

The coated is covered in a short and float coat while the hairless is smooth and tough with a close-fitting skin. The breed was recognized by AKC in 2011 as a Non-Sporting breed and by FCI in the Spitz and primitive type group.
