This hairless, Canadian-developed breed is instantly recognizable. Sphynxes have a narrow head and webbed feet; they can also have markings on their skin like furred cats do on their fur. They are warm to the touch and are prone to seeking out warm places.

This is an intentional hybrid of multiple breeds. They are a low-riding breed with short legs; they are generally small to medium-sized, with sparse fur and wide-spaced round eyes that give them an alien-like appearance.
