Chinese Crested

Hairless dogs appeared in China as early as the 13th century. Chinese Cresteds, which were recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1991, come in two varieties — hairless and coated (also known as Powderpuffs). The hairless version has a ridge of fur on his head resembling a mohawk, as well as soft, silky hair on his ears, face, tail, feet and part of his legs. The hair and skin can be any color or combination of colors. This is a people-loving pup who's agile — he’s an excellent climber and jumper — and very bright. Translation: Keep his mind busy with puzzle toys if you don’t want him to spend his time figuring out how to place orders online for cases of dog cookies.
