Frida the Xoloitzcuintli | Balboa Park, San Diego Dog Photography

I have ALWAYS had a huge appetite for learning, and of course one of my favorite topics is DOGS! So when the opportunity to photograph a gorgeous hairless Xoloitzcuintli knocked on my door, I was all over it! Xoloitzcuintli - or Xolo, for short - were officially recognized by the AKC in 2010. The word Xoloitzcuintli is derived from the Aztec god, "Xolotl," and the Aztec word for dog, "itzcuintli!" The breed is a member of the Non Sporting Group, and is described as loyal, alert, calm, and trainable. There are both hairless and coated varieties. And as luck would have it for my fellow lovers of specialty dog breeds, Frida is available for adoption! She is a purebred Xolo, who was purchased as a gift then no longer wanted :( If you want to add a unique member to your pack, give Frida a look! If you're not looking to adopt, keep reading for your opportunity to have a free Haute Dog photo session!

Stunning, isn't she?! If you're interested in learning more about adopting Frida, please contact Scratch My Belly dog rescue.

If you have a rare or unique dog breed of your own, I want to meet him/her!! I'm putting out a MODEL CALL for rare and unique breeds, like Frida the Xolo! You will receive a complimentary session with the full Haute Dog: couture pet photography experience, in addition to an 11x14 fine art print of your favorite image! Bring me your Wolfhounds, your Ibizans, your Caucasian Shepherds, and Lagotto Romagnolos. My personal project for 2016 is to meet and photograph as many rare and unique breeds as possible.
