Overview
A very popular breed, the Chinese Crested is sweet, lively and affectionate. Both varieties vary in outer characteristics, but have similar personalities. An intelligent and entertaining dog, the Chinese Crested loves to climb and dig holes. The hairless does best in warmer climates, while the Powderpuff is partial to both.
Character
Rarely barking or nipping, this dog is well mannered and cheerful, although he can be wary of strangers. The Chinese Crested makes a good companion animal, and is always there to cheer you up. The breed does well in obedience classes and is willing to please his owner.
Temperament
A devoted family member, the Chinese Crested is gentle and playful. It does exceptionally well with children and other animals and is a well-adjusted breed. Very alert, highly intelligent, this dog is also prone to timidity and should be socialized both during puppy and adulthood.
Care
The Chinese Crested is very clean and has virtually no odor at all. The Hairless variety should always be protected from the cold and the sun. Using a sunscreen will protect this breed's sensitive skin from sunburn. The Powderpuff needs daily brushing and trimming to keep the coat clean and free of matting. This breed sheds little to no hair.
Coat
There are two very different varieties of the Chinese Crested, one is Powderpuff having a long coat, the other is Hairless having long hair on the feet and head. The Powderpuff does need extensive grooming, however the Hairless requires minimal hair care.
Training
Being a very intelligent breed, this dog does well in obedience type sports. Consistency is a must, however this breed can be relatively sensitive and should have a gentle trainer. The Chinese Crested is great at performing tricks.
Activity
The Chinese Crested does very well in apartment life and would do just fine without a fenced yard. Regular play sessions would be sufficient for this breed. When outdoors, this breed must always be protected from harsh sun, or cold weather.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Chinese Crested puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

The Chinese Crested comes in two forms - Hairless - in which the dog still has fur on it's head, tip of tail and feet. And the - Powder Puff - in which the dog is covered in light, fluffy fur. Sometimes it can be thick and sometimes it can be thin, depending on the breeder and pedigree.

do some chinese cresteds have really short snouts? can some Chinese Crested dogs have really short snouts?

1 Comment

Short answer is no. Long answer is that a mixed-breed can have a short nose but this is NOT acceptable in the AKC standards. The Chinese Crested should have a long, slender face.

Science Diet is crap. A grain-free, high quality dog food is the best thing to feed your puppy. Acana, Origjn, Merrick, Taste of the Wild, Now, and Go! are all great brands to look at. If your dog is chewing on his feet, it could be stemmed from allergies.

He should be able to get along with her just fine. However, be sure you follow the proper steps for introducing two dogs to each other, and if you don't plan on breeding I highly recommend spaying or neutering them.

Their baldness is not a disease nor a disability, therefore there is no 'treatment' for it. The Chinese Crested is bred to be hairless, like the Xolo, the Inca Orchid, and the hairless Sphynx cat.

Depending on if the dog takes after the sire or the dam, but on average, the dog should be in between the sire and the dam for size.

1 Comment

Just like humans, the hairless Chinese Crested can get dry skin. Just as you'd apply an oil-free lotion to your own dry skin, you would want to apply an oil-free lotion to a Crestie with dry skin. Most Cresties from reputable breeders don't have chronic dry skin, so it's not a big worry, but it is a possibility you should be prepared for. Weather, irritants in the environment, and even the clothes your Crestie wears can all cause dry skin, too.

I just adopted a hairless Chinese Crested and he does not drink water! Is this a breed problem?? His urine is very dark in color so I started adding water into his food...which he does not like. Does anyone else have this problem? I saw something about using distilled water.

No, this is not a breed-specific problem. Dogs will drink when they are thirsty, typically, but if your pup isn't feeling well he may have lost his desire to eat or drink. Take him to the vet! To help boost his desire to drink, you can add low sodium chicken broth to his water at a 1 to 1 ratio (one part water, one part broth.) Do get him to the vet ASAP though.

I got a 3 month old powder puff 1 week ago as a companion dog for my disabled hubby. The puppy immediately became attached to me as his surrogate mom and cries every time I leave the room. It has taken 1 week before he has learned to be with my husband without me. We will be starting him in private classes soon to try and correct these behaviors. I would not recommend anyone leaving this breed alone for that length of time.

I heard to use acne products like St. Ives apricot scrub and use Aveeno shampoos since they are for sensitive skin. apricot scrub will help keep porns unclogged and will keep the red bumps from coming back and then Aveeno will help keep the skin moist. I hope this helps.

Well, I do believe something may have happened to him, seeing that these are usually not chinese crested traits. It sounds like what your doing now is working. Just keep taking it VERY slowly, let your puppy warm up to being around your husband. I suggest giving your husband treats, and rewarding your puppy everytime he gets even more comfortable with your husband. Have fun with your crested and good luck! Sometimes they can be a handful!:)

I think his previous owner was a man that mistreated him,so he probably thinks that all men are bad. This happens to many rescue dogs that have been mistreated.
