The Chinese Crested is an amazing-looking small dog who didn’t originate from China. Chinese crested dogs come in 2 types: powderpuff (with hair), hairless.
Simply no earlier written past information regarding the beginning of this dog breed exists, thus theories have filled in the spaces/gaps. A theory states that the Chinese Crested dogs might find their history from the African hairless dogs. Such small dogs had been bought by sailors that moved from port-to-port and made their way to China. The Chinese liked little dogs and bred these dogs with small size and developed a new breed.
The powderpuff breed has a thick double coat.
12 to 13 inches
