Why Hairless Dogs Rock | Wide Open Pets

When it comes to thick, fluffy coats, some dogs just don't get what the big deal is.

Hairless dogs are growing in popularity today with people who suffer from allergies, as well as with those who just love their unique look. More often than not, these follicly-challenged canines are clumped into the overarching group of "hairless dogs."

Let me introduce you to 15 amazing dogs that will show you exactly why they love living the hairless life.

They have another reason to constantly be near their favorite human.
