i'm not sure how far to go into the pre-columbian mesoamerican relationship with dogs bc it can be upsetting to some people but ican tell you this art symbolized how very important these dogs were to the people!
i think these are from whats called the Late Formative Period which is like 300 BC to 600 AD. i'm not 100% sure WHICH culture made it because Colima was home to several indigenous tribes including the Nahua, Otomi, Tolteca, and Chichimeca
i will say for anyone worried that these dogs were deeply revered, well taken care of, and loved.
