Thank you, I stand corrected, it was a Chinese Crested. :)

Wish I could find that same dog again, as it had some HUGE fluffy hair. Well, at least where it had hair.

Well who knew, certainly not me, Chinese Crested actually have lots of hair all over their little bodies. With their hair I think they are sort of a cute little dog. I guess it is sort of like a poodle thing, where they shave them into funny haircuts for showing.

Okay, now I am just looking really ignorant. The AKC website just informed me the Chinese Crested comes in both the "mostly naked" & the hairy all over varieties.

To look and read about the different dogs here go to the upper left side click on Switch Breed and pick a breed. Just remembr to switch back to your breed when finished.

The 'naked' Chinese Crested is lovely, its like holding a hot water bottle. They are called 'crested' because although hairless dogs, they have a few hairs sticking up on on head & ears (the crest); they usually have feathering on the lower legs and feet and end of tail too. The percentage of the breed which isn't hairless is covered in a fine silky coat all over; these are known as Powderpuffs, and are geneticaly essential to the breed. A population composed of only hairless dogs would prove fatal.


There is a Mexican Hairless breed too; I don't think that looks much like a Chinese Crested. Xolos are altogether bigger & more solid dogs; different colour patterns; increasingly popular tho' I have not yet met one in the flesh.

This guy! Looked like a pony at first glance, on his small multi-generational picture page.

Most of ya'll probably are not into horses, let alone carriage driving. Though fancy harness ponies is a thing amongst some folk. The flashier looking with all their flowing hair the better.

No, I do not need glasses. LOL

See, same body color, even the white mark going up the hind leg. Though his mane & everything has really been trimmed up on him.

These guys really have all hair stuff going on for them:


So there, that is why I thought OMG a pony on PDB.   ;)

'Legends' is a lovely specimen, TWC, but that photo is cropped so you cannot accurately see the size of the dog. Chinese Crested are a Toy-sized breed, so no chance, in life, of being mistaken for ponies. Where have you been, anyway ? I can recall lots of pics posted here on PDB of members' horses, or just ones they thought beautiful; we've had Fallabellas, other Miniature horses; Tennessee Walking stallions; one member used to post pics of herself riding Rodeo/Circus horses, and her Brahma bull ! For a DOG website, we've had more than a few equine pin-ups.

Some of those Gypsy Vanner's in the link above are absolutely stunning and the hair? wow!! And yes they do resemble the Chinese Crested on a different scale of course, lol.
