This little dog will never go unnoticed, especially the Powderpuff variety, which has a fluffy coat. Chinese Crested Dogs are very affectionate and close to their family. Discreet and attentive, they alternate between moments of calm and bouts of mad running. Their dynamism is never far from the surface.

Chinese Crested Dogs are active and gracious animals, with fine to medium bones. The body is either smooth and hairless, save the head, feet and tail or covered in a veil of fine silky hair. Ideally, the crest begins at the stop, tapering to the neck, preferably comprising long, elegant hairs, although sparse hairs are permitted. The hairless variety requires regular care, including baths virtually every week, with particular attention for dry skin and skin problems due to regular exposure to the sun.
