Introduction

The Chinese Crested is one of the most unique dog breeds out there today. With their “crested” look, feathery tail, and spotted skin, there is no mistaking this breed for any other. With its extraordinary look comes an elegant and regal attitude. The Chinese Crested comes in two varieties – Hairless (without fur) and Powderpuff (with fur). Despite their name, the breed did not actually originate in China. Instead, their name is due to the breed being used as ratters in Chinese ships. Small, animated, high-spirited and extremely affectionate, Chinese Crested dogs can make for a perfect house pet and daily companion.

Chinese Crested Dog Name Considerations

Chinese Crested dogs are highly unique and are chosen by wannabe dog owners specifically because of their special traits. There are many qualities that set this breed apart from others, which is why they deserve a name that matches their individuality.

One of the first things that you will notice about the Chinese Crested is the coat, or lack thereof. This exotic look adds to the breed’s distinctiveness. Cresteds are also tiny in physique and come in a variety of coat colors, including apricot, black, blue, cream, chocolate and tricolor mix. These physical characteristics may be used as a basis for a name.

Aside from the physical attributes, Chinese Crested dogs also have some special quirks and behaviors that make them stand out. They are known for being lively and dexterous, being able to leap and climb despite their small size. However, in spite of this agility, Cresteds can be lazy and do not enjoy running around like other dog breeds. The breed also falls under the “Velcro dog” category, which means that they can be immensely clingy towards their owners. In fact, they get easily attached to their masters and can become quite needy, to a fault. However, their loyalty knows no bounds and their devotion is admirable. Their many funny quirks and temperament may become a source of inspiration for a name.
