Kalon American Hairless Terriers

The first American Hairless Terrier (AHT) appeared in Louisiana in 1972 & quickly developed a loyal & devoted following.  On January 1, 2004, the AHT achieved full breed recognition by the United Kennel Club (UKC).

AHTs were accepted into AKC-FSS October 2011 & moved into AKC Misc. on January 1, 2014.  AHTs received full recognition by AKC on January 1, 2016 & were moved into the AKC Terrier Group.

The AHT is an intelligent & loving companion that ranges in size from 12" to 16" at the shoulder.   

Many dog lovers with allergies that prevented them from owning a dog have discovered the hairless AHT to be a perfect fit.   The AHT has gained many loyal admirers all over the world & today the breed can be found in Finland, England, the Czech Republic & Japan.

Like other hairless dog breeds, the AHT comes in two varieties (hairless & coated).  However the hairless AHT is unique from all other hairless dog breeds.  The feel of the AHT skin is very different & hard to describe.  Some have called it a suede or micro-fiber feel.  Hairless puppies are born with a light 'birth coat' which they lose by the time they are 8-12 wks old, leaving them completely hairless.  Unlike other hairless breeds, the hairless AHT has a set of normal looking, well-rooted teeth.  The hairless AHT is very unique in the dog world because of these things & because the genetics of the breed is so different from other hairless breeds.  

Kalon is honored to have acquired some wonderful, top quality AHTs & we hope in a small way, we can contribute to this breed's bright future.

Please Note:  All my dogs, including my AHTs are health tested & checked.  While Kalon seldom breeds, when a litter is bred, it's only done to produce the best possible show dogs & maintain bloodlines.
