The Chinese Crestese is the result of cross breeding between the Chinese Crested and Maltese purebreds. They are called hybrid dogs. If the parent breed is a Powderpuff Chinese Crested, the resulting hybrid will double-coat where as hairless Chinese Crested will produce single coat hybrid. These hybrids have a terrier like face, moderately long muzzle, round and alert eyes and ears that hang down to cheek levels.
They are typically found in white colour. They are also found in white with black, brown, red and gray patches.
They are either double-coat or single coat dogs depending if powder puff or hairless parent Chinese Crested was used.
They are very loving and affectionate dogs. They are very intelligent dogs that require early socialization to prevent them from becoming timid when they mature. These dogs are very good with small children, other dogs and pets in the family. They are loveable and a fun to have in the house.
They need extra care in too cold or damp weather. Should be kept dry to prevent health complications.
These dogs are intelligent enough to learn quickly. Training should start as soon as possible.
They are high energy dogs and would require fair amount of indoor and outdoor activities.
