Peruvian Inca Orchid
Very much like the sight hound, Peruvian Inca Orchids love to run. They are an elegant and slim dog, whose aspect expresses speed, strength and harmony without ever appearing coarse. The Peruvian Inca Orchid was bred as bed warmers by the early Indians in Peru, with the powderpuff version being used as hunters. They were often kept in the same room as their orchids where the humidity helped to preserve their silky smooth skin, thus leading to their name. Although their temperatures are the same as other breeds, the lack of hair makes them feel warmer to the touch - perhaps giving rise to the phrase 'three dog night' as a term for cold evenings. Peruvian Inca Orchids are an extremely devoted to their family, and they can be very wary of strangers. They are clowns who love to entertain and spend time with their families. They are lively, very intelligent, and are quick to obey. This breed is sensitive, however, and does not need much correction. It will likely wilt at a raised voice. The Peruvian Inca Orchid is affectionate, loving and loyal. Unfortunately, this breed suffers from a range of health problems associated with their hairlessness. The powederpuff versions of the breed are kept in the genes in order to prevent more health problems. Hairless Inca Orchid Dogs can suffer from sunburn, cold temperatures, and dental problems such as losing teeth. They are fragile dogs, but they are very friendly and get along with most anyone.
