Smart, curious and energetic coming in a hairless or coated variety. A small dog with a big personality and true terrier grit.

Hairless, but healthy

The AHT is the only hairless breed in which the trait is recessive, and therefore, the homozygous state is not lethal (as is the case with other hairless breeds). Actually, the hairless variety is a healthy dog born with a sparse coat that is lost completely within the first six weeks.
Browse pedigrees and photos, analyse health and pedigrees, and contribute information to the archive.
There is simply nothing that comes anywhere close to serving the breed and those who love it.
