What makes you want this breed specifically?
IF you're not set on it perhaps you can tell us of your lifestyle and such where you live, house, apt, yard, hot/cold climate and we can suggest some things.

Not sure if you're gonna have any luck but try petfinder
www.petfinder.com

You do realize this breed cannot tolerate bright sun or the cold? *shiver* < thinking about the cold cold winters in Montreal.....

Obviously the Montreal was added AFTER I posted my suggestion and the OP didn't respond to my post.

I didn't notice any editing done by the original poster. Or is that not what you meant?

Editing can be done after the fact without anyone knowing. (original post)

(1st edit after original post)

(2nd edit after original post)

(3rd and final edit)

So you see, Luba was correct.

I did not know that, I think I've edited 2 posts ( almost immediately after posting ) and each time it showed an edit was done.

P.S. ~ I never said the poster that replied was incorrect, I simply said I never noticed any editing.

Trescanis... If you don't put a reason for editing it won't show that it was edited!

Hi There,

Just some advice Please don't buy a Mexican Hairless from Paws R Us Kennel in Quebec. I know they have them but please read threads about Paws. I see a ad in the newspaper from them today, again please stay away from them as some believe they are a puppy mill.

Isn't it a little cold for that breed of dog in your climate?

If you REALLY have to get a hairless breed, there are also chinese cresteds. Theres is a rescue for them in new york which you can view at www.petfinder.com and if you do get a hairless breed, remember to buy lots of doggie sweaters!!
