I love this exotic, unique, elegant breed. I got my first Chinese Crested around 2003.
The Chinese Crested has 2 varieties, the completely coated Powder Puff and the Hairless, which has a crest, plume, socks and a varing degree of body hair.
The Crested needs an owner/family who can appreciate their style and personality. Cresteds are very loving, playful and silly. They bond well with their person and can be very content, hanging out at home. Regular interactions, activities and socialization helps them become more outgoing.
Both the Powder Puff & Hairless need grooming on a regular basis.
