About Inca Hairless Dog

Many may wonder, what dog is that on our logo and what does it have to do with Peru? This is a Peruvian hairless dog and is one of the oldest breeds in existence. The Peruvian Hairless Dog is a breed of dog with its origins in Peruvian pre-Inca cultures. This is an ancient breed. Although it is often perceived to be an Incan dog because it is known to have been kept during the Inca Empire, they were also kept as pets in pre-Inca cultures from the Peruvian coastal zone. Ceramic hairless dogs from the Chimú, Moche, and Vicus culture are well known. Depictions of Peruvian hairless dogs appear around 750 A.D. on Moche ceramic vessels and continue in later Andean ceramic traditions.
