The Chinese Crested

Chinese Crested

The name of the Chinese Crested is a little misleading. The name suggests that the dog has no fur. However, this is only partly true. Some Chinese Crested dogs have no fur, but there are also Chinese Crested dogs that do have a fur. Originally, the dog was used to catch rats and thus operated quite independently. This can still be seen in the breed, as the animal has a strong will of its own!

From some dogs it is not possible to determine exactly where they come from and who their ancestors are. This is usually the case when that history goes way back. This is also the case with the Chinese Crested. In the case of the Chinese Crested, it is suspected that the animals were brought to China from Africa in ancient times. However, these species would have been much larger, but were reduced in size by the Chinese. The Chinese used the dog on their ships. The animals are good at catching rats. In order to keep the ships free of vermin, the Chinese Crested was also hired.

Because the dog was present on ships, it ended up in many places. The animal was traded in the harbours of faraway places and ended up, for example, in Egypt, Turkey and South Africa. Thus, the animal has spread all over the world.

The Chinese Crested is not the largest dog in the world. However, it is quite lively and fast. In addition, the animals are quite watchful. When they notice something suspicious, they will certainly let you know. The animal is loyal and likes to be around people. A nice walk with the boss, or at least the presence of the boss, does the animal definitely good. This breed can deal with strangers, but at first they can be a little reserved.

This breed is very attached to its owner and will listen well. However, it is important to be consistent in its upbringing. It is also important to teach the dog at a young age to deal with other dogs. Bring him therefore as much as possible in contact with other dogs and teach the dog that there is nothing wrong with that.
