Archaeological evidence has been found in the tombs of the Colima, Mayan, Toltec, Zapotec, and Aztec Indians dating the breed to over 3500 years ago. Long regarded as guardians and protectors, the indigenous peoples believed that the Xolo would safeguard the home from evil spirits as well as intruders.
Xolos were considered sacred dogs by the Aztecs, Toltecs, Maya, and other groups.

Death of the Warriors
Practicing how to die by departing from the chest - blending and uniting with the Tonatiuch, The Sun. Exiting the body via the heart - it is the death that leads us to the Sun, through the chest to become one with the Sun or to come back like hummingbird or butterfly. To achieve this we should have cleansed our entire energy body, all our chakras - totonalcayos.
