Peruvian Inca Orchid
- Dog breed group: Miscellaneous Class
- Weight: 8 to 18 pounds
- Life span: 12 to 14 years
As you can see, the Peruvian Inca Orchid is an elegant and slim dog with an athletic appearance. They are very affectionate and clever dogs. They tend to adopt a ‘serious’ temperament around strangers, which makes them excellent watch dogs. That being said, they are loyal and protective of their families, but just like any other dog breed, they can be nervous around children, so you should keep an eye on them when they are around kids.
In general, the Peruvian Inca Orchid is prone to getting overweight, so try to make sure they eat high quality foods and pay attention to the amount and calorie intake. Of course, treats can be essential when training them, but giving them too many can cause obesity – this rule applies to any other dog breed.
