The Chinese Crested is a breed of exotic looking and very small dog that can weigh up to a maximum of 5.5kg. This breed can come without fur (‘Hairless’) or with fur (‘Powder Puff’). Hairless Chinese Cresteds - which usually do have some hair on their head, paws and tail - are the more desirable version of the breed.
Chinese Cresteds might look fragile but you’d be surprised how robust these little dogs are. They adapt easily to new situations and aren’t as complicated to look after as their fancy looks may suggest.
They are happy and confident little dogs that will provide lots of pleasure and are sure to provide great entertainment for their owners. Chinese Cresteds are very loyal companions and their favourite place is sure to be by the side of their owners.
They are comedians who love to entertain and play with their families. But Chinese Cresteds will also enjoy hours of cuddling, lying on you like a heat pack and enjoying a scratch behind the ears.
They are more reserved towards strangers and may seem arrogant. But they are simply taking their time to assess the situation and choosing to only give devotion and love to their owners rather than to strangers.
This breed enjoys walks but doesn’t require much exercise at all - playing and doing tricks is more up their alley. They are easy to raise and train but are talented at getting their owners to do things their way!
