Welcome to CHINESECRESTED.NET
The Chinese crested dog is not a manufactured breed, meaning someone did not take two or more existing breeds to product a new breed. It is classified as a rare breed and in 1991 when I was introduced to them there were only an estimated 400 of them in the US.
I acquired my first hairless girl and she soon became the newest child in my household. Realizing the pleasure this unique all black hairless child brought into my life I went looking for a male to breed her to so I could share this unique pleasure with others.
That was like looking for a needle in a haystack. There was no internet that instantly found anything you were looking for, so it was dog magazine classified adds. Even then there were no crested adds to be found. I would have joined a sperm of the month club if I could have found one.
My first crested came from a Gypsy Rose Lee Bitch that she had given to one of her dancing ladies. The lady died in a nursing home and my breeder rescued the girl to go with the boy she already had. So it was back to the breeder I went and she finally located a suitable boy for me and my Chinese crested family started to grow.
In 1993 I started showing my Dog in AKC competition and started collecting a mountain of ribbons and many AKC champions. At this time I have over 100 AKC Champions to my credit.
If you are looking for that special child to add to your home than always go to a responsible breeder. There are lots of back yard breeders, breeding cresteds that are not Show quality. If you want a Quality puppy contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
