Chinese Crested Breed Information:
The Chinese Crested exists in two distinct varieties, the Hairless and the Powder Puff. The Hairless Chinese Crested is hairless except for its head, feet, and tail, while the Powder Puff Chinese Crested has a long coat of soft hair. Both types of this unusual breed come in a variety of colors that are solid, mixed or spotted all over. Both varieties of the Chinese Crested are often seen in the same litter. The Chinese Crested originated in Africa, where they were called "African Hairless Terriers." The ancient Aztecs kept them as bedwarmers and, believe it or not, did eat them. When Chinese trading ships made stops in Africa along their routes, they picked up the little dogs and brought them along to serve as ratters aboard their ships. These sailors renamed the breed “Chinese Crested”, and the name has stuck ever since. This unusual breed was given full recognition in 1991 by the AKC. The Chinese Crested has been gaining popularity throughout the United States and England, and it is predominately used today as a companion dog. This breed is one of four types of hairless dog breeds that are known throughout the US. The Chinese Crested is a very rare breed with a sweet temper and lively, playful disposition. They are very cuddly and loving, and they love to hug. Chinese Crested puppies should be socialized from an early age to prevent the onset of timid behavior. This breed generally gets along well with other pets. They become very attached to their owners and have difficulty adjusting to a new one. They crave constant attention and loving companionship.
