This little dog will never go unnoticed, especially the "Powderpuff" variety with a distinctive, long coat.

About the Chinese Crested Dog

Chinese Crested Dogs are very affectionate and close to their family. Quiet and attentive, they alternate between moments of calm and bouts of activity.

Chinese Crested Dogs come in two different types: the fine-boned "deer" type and the more heavy-boned "cobby" type.
