Chinese crested dog starting cost $400 to $700 – Often crowned with the title of World’s Ugliest Dog this breed is at very least weird if you are being kind and to some just downright ugly. However the intrigue of such an interesting looking animal is a draw to some and maybe even translates to some kind of beauty. After all beauty is only skin-deep, right!
There are a few kinds of this dog. The most famous is of course the hairless variety which sports a crest on it’s head and a bit on it’s feet and tail. This is the dog that gets called ‘ugly’ but is kind of cute if you open your mind a bit! Then there are the powder puffs, a lot more beautiful with a long soft furry coat.
Both types are actually really nice sensitive little creatures that enjoy being social and and are often quite intelligent. They train well and enjoy being obedient. As far as toy breeds go they also have good health but are prone to some conditions.
Although their name suggests they originated in China evidence says they may have originated from Africa and share some genetic traits with Mexican hairless breeds.
They are relatively affordable in dog terms and can be purchased between $400-$700.
