Actual origination of Abyssinian Sand Terrier is unknown, but it is assumed it might have developed in Africa. Earlier, people believed it to posses magical healing powers as its warm body was used for warming bed during winter, hot compress for healing ache or pain. It is also believed that they are developers of the modern-day hairless breed which include Chinese Crested Dog. Due to their ‘naked’ or 'sand skin' looks, they were not so popular in Britain.
