Beauty–In the Eye of the Beholder? Chinese Crested dogs — 17 Comments

  1. I have seen hairless Chinese Cresteds before, and found them… beauty challenged. But yours are CUTE!

  2. Hi Bill–great to see you here!!

    And Dawn, thanks so much for visiting!


  3. Thanks, Bill! I ran into a lady at the park yesterday who said, "My friend breeds Chinese Cresteds and I think they're the ugliest dogs I've ever seen." I had to politely disagree, but like the post says, "Beauty IS in the eye of the beholder."

    Thanks for having me here, Roxanne. I'll be checking in from time to time to read comments.

  4. I recently rescued four Chinese Cresteds. One was accidentally bred shortly after arriving here, but we welcomed her beautiful litter of puppies. (One of the other Chinese Cresteds we rescued bred her). We now have two beautiful females, three three week old puppies, and two rambunctious male "teen-agers". These are, without a doubt, the coolest, most awesome dogs we have ever had! They have almost human-like personalities, are very loving, and will do any silly thing to please you! It didn't take more than a few days to see beyond what people usually see with these dogs. Anyone who thinks they are "ugly" has certainly never been around one much! They are such clowns, and so eager to please!Take a closer look and get to know one – you'll truly be amazed!


  5. I so agree, Wendy! My Chinese Cresteds stole my heart from the first look.

  6. Those are such sweet dogs! Congratulations on your new book Dawn.

  7. I am definitely a dog lover but must say that this is the first time that I have seen Chinese Cresteds. To be hairless like that is strange but actually think it is probably much healthier for people with allergies. We have a border collie who is so furry and although I love him like crazy, he sheds too much for my asthma.


  8. Thanks for sharing the pix of your dogs. I am looking forward to reading your book. Love the cover.

  9. I think that is an adorable picture of the doggies.

    I would love to be entered in the drawing.

  10. aww how cute. I say to each their own. I mean I know that people don't like Rotties they see them as HUGE and mean, I love them. There are people who will look at cats and see only trouble(which is probably true) but I've been a cat lover all my life. So I always say we love what we love. My dachshund, Jake, is a minature long-haired but his parents were both short-haired so he was the odd one and no one but us wanted him. I couldn't imagine having a short-haired now.

    I can't wait for your new book to come out!!It sounds great.

    Enjoy your babies.
