History [ edit ]

The American Hairless Terrier is a fairly recent breed that it was only establish as an independent breed - apart from the Rat Terrier, from whom they descent – in 1988 as far the AHTA/AHTC is concerned. But it was only in 2004 that the U.K.C. recognized it´s standard.

It all started in 1972, in a litter of mid-sized Rat Terriers, a completely hairless female was born. She was named Josephine and became the first of a new breed – the American Hairless Terrier. Her owners, Edwin and Willie Scott, from Louisiana, United States, started to breed her with others Rat Terriers, in hope that she would have hairless puppies.
