Chinese Crested Dog
Hairless and Powderpuffs


Although the origin of the Chinese Crested dog is
thought to have been Africa, it is known that the ancient
Mandarins of China liked their elegance, and kept them as
pets, from where they gained their name.   Chinese Crested
dogs were often traded by the Chinese in the many eastern
ports of Africa and Asia long ago.   At sometime they made
their way to Central and South America and to the West
Indies where they have been known for centuries.

The hairless variety has hair on the skull called a
crest and hair on the back of the neck, the hair on its tail
is called a plume.   The hair on its lower legs are referred
to as socks.   The skin is soft and smooth and care must be
taken so that it doesn't get sunburned.   The coated variety
or the Powderpuff, as he is called, has a full jacket.

This gay and alert little dog is friendly and likes
children, but is reserved with strangers.   It is moderately
active and enjoys daily walks.   They are clean and odorless
dogs.   The coated variety sheds a bit and tends to mat, so
a brushing once a day should help this.   Both the Chinese Crested hairless and the Chinese Crested Powderpuff, or
coated variety can be born in the same litter.   Elegant and
graceful, a frisky Chinese Crested puppy makes a loving
companion, very playful and entertaining for the whole family.  Like most young puppies, they need lots of early
socialization to avoid shyness. A breed book for
additional care and information is urged.
