Chucho Jiotoso

Chucho con jiote2

There are more dogs than there are people here in Guatemala. Dogs just wander the streets. The people call them “chucos” which translated means “mutts.”  Many chuchos are pretty mangy. They often lose their hair, and develop black scabby skin. This “mange” is called “jiote” [he-oat-te].  Here is a sample of a chucho with jiote.
