General Appearance: AHT is a smoothly muscled, active, small-to-medium terrier. The preferred ratio of length of body to height is 10:9. The head is broad, slightly domed, wedge-shaped, and proportionate to the size of the body. Ears may be erect, tipped or button. Both varieties may have a natural tail carried in an upward curve, or the tail may be docked in dogs of the coated variety. The AHT has two varieties; Coated: The coated variety is covered with a short, smooth and dense coat that has a sheen. Whiskers are not removed. Hairless: Hairless puppies are born with a soft, vestigial ‘down’ known as the ‘birth coat’. This generally covers the body but diminishes over time and puppies should be completely hairless by approximately 8-10 weeks of age. A mature, hairless dog should be free of hair with the exception of whiskers and guard hairs on the eyebrows and muzzle. Short, very fine (vellus) hair may be present on the body of a mature dog. The skin is smooth and warm to the touch.
Characteristics: The AHT is energetic, alert, curious, intelligent & easy to train. The ancestors of this breed were bred to hunt. The lack of coat makes the hairless variety unsuited for hunting, but both varieties still have a strong hunting instinct and the coated dogs are fearless, tenacious hunters with seemingly unlimited energy. The AHT is an exceptionally friendly companion, getting along well with children, other dogs, and even cats. AHT enjoy human companionship immensely and will enthusiastically share any activity with their owners. The hairless dogs require protection from the sun and winter cold weather. They can make wonderful pets for the allergy sufferer.
Height and Weight: AHT ranges in height from 7 to 20 inches and 15 to 25 pounds
Some registries allow for two sizes (toy and miniature) and others only one.
