Default Tyke: My Beautiful Bald Boy

Yes he is bald! It is hard to tell in pics sometimes. He's perfectly healthy, just hairless. Tyke is now 11 months old and 2.5 lbs. Its been awile since I took picsof him so here he is!

How interesting!!! I've alwayswanted to touch a hairless dog or cat in person.. and I will say that hairless dogs are cute... and I cannot say the same for hairless cats!! lol... He's adorable!! How much goes into taking care of his skin? How often do you bathe him and such? I'm really interested cause I know or a few people with hairless chis.. I know Mercy has one named Nano as well.

His skin is very soft. To keep his skin nice I bathe him once weekly. I put unscented lotion on him every other day. When he goes outside I put sunblock on him. Other than that he is pretty low maintenence- no brushing or shedding here!

I would LOVE to see pictures or talk with anyone who has a hairless Chihuahua!

He is sooo cute!!! I didn't know about hairless chi's. Are they very common or is does it only pop up once in a while?

Oh gosh!!! That is just so neat! I would love to touch him!!! (^_^) I think it would be just about the same as Yoshi's belly skin where he's got no hair. I always say it looks like chicken skin.. lol. but it's SO soft! He's such a cutie!!

They aren't a "real breed" by themselves. He is 100% Chihuahua. He wasn't bred to be hairless. It just kind of happenned-genetic fluke! AKC standards only allow smooth and long coats. It is thought that Chihuahuas are from theTechichi dogs of the Toltecs and were crossed with hairless dogs from the Orient. So being hairless must still be somewhere way back in their genetics.
