AHTs & winter fun
Hairless Terriers in the snow
Finland, which is one of the Nordic countries (Scandinavia) in northern Europe, hosts the largest number of American
Hairless Terriers outside the United States. The first three
American Hairless Terriers arrived to Finland in 2003. The
popularity of the breed has grown tremendously. In the fall of 2006,
there there were already 56 AHTs living in Finland, and as of April
2007 the number is 67. Finnish AHT
fanciers have even formed their own AHT club -
