BRIEF HISTORICAL SUMMARY:
There are two varieties, the hairless dog and the “Powder Puff”. The hairless variety has a crest over the head that extends partly over the neck, “cloaks” covering the fingers and a feather over the tail. The remaining body, as its name implies, lacks hair. The “Powder Puff” variety is covered entirely by a long soft veil.

The Chinese Crested developed at that time as guardian of the treasures of the houses and of structure bigger and heavier like hunting dog. They were seen in exhibitions in America from 1885 to 1926 but really their presence has been notorious for fifty years.
