  • At the moment, only Canadian sphynxes have received worldwide recognition. This is a fairly stable breed with 30 years of experience, transmitting its traits in a recessive manner.
  • Most people who have not seen the sphynx with their own eyes evaluate the appearance of the sphinxes negatively, but when they actually meet them, they change their point of view, instantly falling under the magic of these amazing creatures.

  • Sphynxes are calm about the water, some of them gladly jump into the water bath to take water treatments.
  • Despite the lack of wool, sphynxes tolerate cool rooms quite well, preferring to sleep in closed and warm places in winter, and hide in the cool in summer. In the summer they love to sunbathe outdoors.
