Showing Off a Mexican Xoloitzcuintli Dog


Mexico, Americas

Laura Mundo, 40, and her dog Miquiztli bond during an event in the plaza of the Palacio de Bellas Artes in the center of Mexico City. Miquiztli is a Xoloitzcuintli, or Xolo, a hairless dog breed originating from Mexico. To celebrate the Mexico premiere of the Disney/Pixar movie “Coco,” nearly 30 members of a Facebook group for Xolo owners gathered to show off their unusual breed. According to Mexican mythology, this breed accompanies their owners on the journey to the underworld, a central theme of “Coco,” which premieres on Nov. 20 in the U.S.
