The American Hairless Terrier
Energetic, alert, curious, and intelligent, the American Hairless Terrier is a small to medium-sized, active terrier. Ancestors of the breed were bred to hunt rats and other vermin, and today the breed excels in many dog sports. The breed comes in both a hairless and coated variety, although the coated dogs still carry the hairless gene. The American Hairless Terrier is well known for causing fewer allergic reactions than other breeds, allowing many allergy sufferers to welcome them into their homes.
