Have you petted an itzcointli?
If you drop into Iik, the shop that sells Guatemalan purses and more in front of the San Francisco church, you can see Mezcalito, their Izcointle dog. Mezcalito is a direct descendant of the dogs here in Mexico long before the Spaniards came. The only parts of his body with hair are the crest on his head and the tuft at the end of his tail. He's a friendly, intelligent dog as his playmate knows.
