The Chinese Crested dog breed originated in Africa and was domesticated in China as early as the 13th century.
If you’ve ever come across a Chinese Crested dog, you know they’re a bit unusual looking, yet somehow elegant in their demeanor — especially the hairless variety.
These dogs, which originated in Africa and were domesticated in China as early as the 13th century, typically only grow hair on the head, tail, and lower legs. This lack of natural protection is why the hairless Chinese Crested must be kept warm with sweaters and other safeguards in cold temperatures. Otherwise, this hairless toy breed will freeze its little behind off.
Here, we showcase some of the most regal Chinese Crested dogs of Instagram.
