More information about this dog

Meet Zola, the unique and quirky Xolo dog also known as Xoloitzcuintle. She is an exceptionally rare breed whose distinctive features are perfect for a range of different brands. Zola is a standard size for this particular breed. With her distinctive skin and look, Zola will make for a great animal model.

Due to her unusual, exotic appearance, Zola attracts attention and comments wherever she goes. Xolos change colour throughout the year as the skin tans. In summer she is a purplish-black or dark liver colour, whereas in the winter she becomes much lighter. Most hairless dogs have incomplete dentition so the tongue occasionally protrudes when they are relaxing.

Pet Acting/Modelling Ability

This hairless dog is very excitable but she will respond well with treats and generally works better around women rather than men. Xolo is used to traffic noise which is perfect for noisy environments such as being on sets.  She is more than happy to work with new people and children which means she able to work with a variety of model and actors.
