In 1972, one entirely hairless female dog appeared in a litter of medium-size Rat Terriers. She was normal in every way, and her owners were determined to develop this new strain. The breed has the true type and temperament of the Rat Terrier and the advantages of hairless dogs, no shedding and no fleas. The pups are born with a bit of sparse fuzzy hair on their bodies. They begin to shed this fuzz at the age of 6 weeks. This breed is still rare, but fanciers are dedicated to its development.
