JEOPARDY! - Mexican Hairless Dog

A Little Friends Photo was featured on JEOPARDY! - America's Favorite Quiz Show, on Monday, March 22nd, 2010. Over 9 million people tuned in to watch the show. The next day, Little Friends received 9 million phone calls and booked 9 million photo shoots. Just kidding. Wouldn't that be crazy! Here's the photo - did you see it? This rare dog breed is called a Mexican Hairless Dog or "Xoloitzcuintle", and is native to Mexico. "Xolos" as they are often called, were considered sacred dogs by the Aztecs (and also Toltecs, Mayans and some other groups) because they believed the dogs were needed by their masters’ souls to help them safely through the underworld. The doggie model in this photo is named Fiona. She resides in Los Angeles and and is owned by Scott Leibow. Congrats to both Fiona and Scott!

Si, seƱor, it's the type of dog seen here (picture shown)
