Chinese Crested Dog, a page dedicated to pictures of the Chinese Crested sent in from our viewers.
Chinese Crested Dog :: there are two varieties, the Hairless and the Powderpuff, the hairless is thought to be the more unusual looking of the two. The tuft of hair on their head is called the crest hence the name.
The skin on the Hairless should be soft to the touch and can require moisturizing cream to keep it subtle, care should be taken in the sun to prevent sunburn.
