BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
Two thousand years ago the Chinese trading ships picked up these dogs from Africa and renamed the dogs 'Chinese Crested'. The Crested dogs originated in Africa where they were called 'African Hairless Terriers' are today more often found in Central and South America. The Chinese Crested Dog is the most popular of the hairless breed, the others are the Mexican Hairless, the Inca Hairless Dog, and the Peruvian Inca Orchid. Elegant and graceful the Chinese Crested is still very rare.

COLOR
The Hairless and Powderpuff varieties come in many colors ranging from a pale pink to black mixed or spotted all over.

COAT
The Chinese Crested is found in two distinct varieties, the Hairless the more popular variety, has long hair only on the head, tail and feet and it has a soft, human like skin, the other is called the Powderpuff and has a coat of long soft hair. Cresteds and Powderpuffs often come in the same litter and both are considered good pets for allergy sufferers.

PERSONALITY
A friendly family member, the Chinese Crested is sweet, lively, playful and affectionate. With his candid personalities he is not aggressive towards other animals, rather delicate, he does exceptionally well with respectful children, but he can be wary of strangers and do not like to be over handled by them. Both varieties have similar personalities and are exceptionally attached to their owners, they have difficulty adjusting to a new one.

CARE
The Chinese Crested Hairless variety exposed skin needs a good sunscreen with suntan lotions if the dog is going to be out in the sun. Also many of them are allergic to lanolin and wool and can get severe acne. Teeth are a problem for the Chinese Crested and should be well cared for to prevent decay, Hairless Cresteds often have an incomplete set of teeth and Toenails are sometimes missing. They love food, so do not overfeed this breed as they tend to become obese easily. The Hairless Chinese Crested is very clean, odorless and is not prone to fleas or ticks. Bathe him frequently and rub a little cream into the skin to keep it smooth and healthy. The Powderpuff needs daily brushing taking extra care when the dog is shedding.

TRAINING
Intelligent and willing to please his owner, the Chinese Crested has an ability to perform tricks and does well in obedience competition. Consistent and gentle training is a must.

ACTIVITY
The Chinese Crested is good for apartment life, he is moderately active indoors and will do just fine without a fenced yard. Regular play sessions and small amount of exercise like a daily half hour walk would be sufficient for the China Crested.
