EL PERRO SIN PELO DEL PERU: UNA RELIQUIA VIVIENTE EN AMERICA. Por Abel León Vilchez
“The prehispanic dog during the Moche and Inca era especially, was used as a partner in hunting deer and other animals. This custom survives until today in the Andean region. This concept that dog had overall during the pre-Hispanic Peru should be considered by the ANKC to classify in the Hound Group. Which although it is not the exact classification I would tell ranking ANKC breed Judges really adjust to the reality of our breed and the Viringo as a hunting dog. “
"His suspicion and distrust strangers made it an extraordinary guardian, and raised in the countryside, it develops its hunting instinct also excel as an excellent pet dog, qualities inherent since ancient times.: The breed is believed to have originated in Asia. The Peruvian Hairless Dog has a nature that is tranquil and intelligent; this striking hairless breed radiates warmth. The medium-sized sighthound was highly prized in Inca culture, portrayed on pottery and found in graves beside its owners.
The Peruvian has the double suspended gait of a sighthound and excels sports where speed and agility are required.
