The American Hairless Terrier was formerly a variant type of Rat Terrier. As of January 1, 2004 the American Hairless Terrier has been deemed a separate terrier breed.

History

Reputedly, the breed started when one hairless puppy appeared in one Rat Terrier litter in the state of Louisiana, United States, in 1972. Edwin and Willie Scott, the owners, liked the bitch's look and temperament, and upon maturity bred her hoping to reproduce the hairless quality. They were eventually successful; a litter produced in 1981 provided the foundation stock of the breed. A handful of dedicated breeders began diligently working together to promote and protect the breed, forming the American Hairless Terrier Association,Inc., the Provisional Parent Club for the breed within the United Kennel Club, Inc. Since its formation, the breed has expanded to a worldwide status with AHTs in many European countries.
