Hairless Khala


The Hairless Khala is native to Central and South America and has the ability to adapt to their surroundings fairly well. Since they have no hair to speak of extremes in temperature can be a problem for them, and they shouldn't be out in direct sunlight without some kind of protection.


The Hairless Khala breed is a natural hound and has a tendency to chase things at a moment's notice, therefore a nice fenced in yard will work best for them. They require daily walks and family playtime to keep them happy and healthy.


Caring for the Hairless Khala is very easy. Since they have no coat, they don't require any grooming to speak of, but they will require sweaters when it's cold and sun protection when it's hot outside. They also have primitive teeth and will require checkups from time to time.


Smart and cunning, the Hairless Khala is a great companion dog for your home. They tend to be loving and docile with family members but can become agitated and even aggressive around strangers. They do better when there is more than one of their breed in a home, and can become depressed if they are left alone for long periods of time. Care should be taken to make sure they don't suffer from Small Dog Syndrome.


The Hairless Khala doesn't have a coat so there isn't anything to worry about when it comes time to groom them. They do need to be bathed occasionally to keep their skin healthy. The only other issue comes from their claws. They are sensitive to trimming and care should be taken when it's time to groom them


The Hairless Khala prefers flight over fight any day of the week. Because they lack hair and dentition, they will usually freeze when startled or run away completely when confronted by other dogs. They tend to be timid around other animals, and socialization should be done at an early age to ensure they will get along with other pets in the house.


The Hairless Khala needs to be trained and socialized at an early age to ensure that they can get along with family members and other pets. They are intelligent and willing to do what needs to be done, but you should be the authority over them or they can tend to fall into the Small Dog Syndrome category and that can cause all kinds of problems.
