Long regarded as guardians and protectors, the indigenous peoples believed that the Xolo would safeguard the home from evil spirits as well as intruders. The breed occurs naturally in two varieties, hairless and coated. This has also ensured a sturdy physical nature and vigorous health generally innate in both coated and uncoated Xolos. Xolo body proportions are rectangular, slightly longer in total body length than the height measured at the highest point of the withers top of the shoulders.
Some people in Mexico continue to believe this breed has healing qualities. Like active breeds such as terriers, Xolos need calm, consistent, and loving obedience training and regular socialization during their growing years. Well-raised Xolos bond strongly with their owners, becoming highly devoted to their families while frequently choosing one specific family member as favorite.
The Aztecs also raised the breed for their meat. The founding members voted unanimously to recognize all three sizes toy, miniature and standard and both varieties hairless and coated at their initial meeting.
The Xolo is moderate in all aspects of its appearance, conveying an impression of strength, agility, and elegance. Their value in ancient native cultures is evidenced by their frequent appearance in art and artifacts.
They will experience subsequent estrous cycles semiannually, during which the body prepares for pregnancy. Hairlessness may have conferred a survival advantage in tropical regions. Hairless Xolos are the dominant expression of the heterozygous Hh hairless trait. As a result, the Xolo has been mistaken for the mythical Chupacabras of Mexico. Breeding coated to coated will only produce coated pups because they are recessive to the hairless trait and do not carry the dominant H gene.
Although they were recognized as indigenous specimens of a native breed, interest in them was minimal at that time, because information was scarce and no standard existed by which to judge them. Both of these are acute conditions, and can kill rapidly. In ancient times the Xolos were often sacrificed and then buried with their owners to act as guide to the soul on its journey to the underworld.
Both varieties occur in all hair or skin colors, and often marked, splashed, or spotted. Daily walks are ideal for exercising most toy-sized Xolos, however more stimulating physical and mental exercise is advised for larger and more active individuals. Inadequately supervised or exercised Xolos can become escape artists, climbing and jumping fences to chase.
