The difference between a peruvian and mexican hairless dog?

emarr3: what is the difference between a peruvian and mexican hairless dog?
I just recently came across a hairless dog in peru and thought that it was a mexican hairless (xolo). i later did some research and found that it’s considered a breed unto itself. i found various literature stating that it had distinct characteristics from the mexican one, but they gave no details. to me it looks like the same dog. it even comes in 3 sizes like the mexican one. can someone point me to an article describing those differences?
