breeds of dogs due to its small size and its
ability to catch vermin aboard ships and in

The Powderpuff is distinguished
by the hair that completely covers its body.
The Chinese Crested has a physically
compact body which is heavyset; however, the Chinese
Crested is sturdy and is well balanced. The Chinese
Crested walks gracefully and is known to be a dedicated,
playful companion. In addition, the Chinese Crested
is known to coexist very well with other animals.
The Chinese Crested has been bred
to display four colors: reddish brown, beige, black
and tan, and solid black.
The Chinese Crested may display
a reddish brown coat that also has black tones at
the chin and whiskers. The beige coat is a mix of
reddish brown and black, with a black mask and whiskers.
The black and tan coat will display black and reddish
brown colors that are seen above the eyes, under
the chin, and on the legs. The black coat is a solid
colour throughout the dog’s body, with a natural

in a family environment and may experience separation
anxiety when removed from familiar people or surroundings.
The Chinese Crested requires constant
companionship and will become anxious, noisy, or
destructive if left alone for more than a few hours.

who are frequently absent. The Chinese Crested requires
consistent contact with people, sights, and sounds.
If the Chinese Crested is denied companionship,
it can become resistant and stubborn.
