The Xoloitzcuintli (Xolo) has real healing power!

The ancient Aztec believed that if an ill person fell asleep with one of these dogs for three nights in a row, their ailment would be transferred to the dog and they would be healed.  Of course this is just a wives tale, right? We know for certain that both dogs and cats can be wonderful psychological therapy for sick or injured humans, but a dog that treat physical diseases seems far-fetched… until you get the full story.  Most of these dogs have very little if any fur and as a result seem to radiate healing warmth when touched.  A dog’s body temperature is higher than a human’s so this warmth is very soothing to persons with painful chronic conditions like arthritis or fibromyalgia.   Xolos can be found lying up against sore muscles and aching joints in many South American villages. Here in the United States, owners of these dogs call these dogs “Mexican Hairless” dogs and credit them with soothing their aches and pains too.
