Overview

About the Coat Type
On breeds with the hairless coat types you see no hair at all on the dog or you may see hair on the top of the head and neck area, on the front feet blending at the pastern, on the rear feet from the hocks down and on the tail. There is no coat growth direction or coat growth pattern on the dogs with no hair, however, the dogs with coat, we see a very visible hair growth pattern. The hairless coat type has the same coat texture as the drop coat type meaning that the hair is soft and silky and is considered as undetermined hair growth that sheds in a mosaic pattern.
