Wednesday Pet of the Week

Today's rescued dog is very rare and unusual....if you've never seen a Chinese Crested dog, they can be somewhat of a shock.....they are basically without hair on much of their bodies, with some hair on their heads.
I looked up this breed and here is what was said about their temperament:
Chinese crested are sweet, lively and playful. They are exceptionally loving and like to hug and smile.Affectionate with children. But children need to be taught to be careful as they don't have hair to protect them like most dogs.They are an intelligent companion and very alert. They are not barkers. They tend to get very attached to their owners and have difficult adjusting to a new one. They crave constant companionship.
There are two types, Chinese Crested and Powderpuff Chinese Crested.....
Introducing to you, Beauty, a Powderpuff Chinese Crested who was found wandering in the construction zone of our new large marketplace center here in Menifee which will open in late September. and no, her eyes are not yellow, that is just a flash reflection...she is tiny, only weighs about 8 lbs.

Donny says she is one of the sweetest of the dogs that have been rescued and wants to sit in your lap constantly....the vet gave her a clean bill of health....they are very clean and have no doggy smell or are troubled by fleas, great for someone with allergies....they do tend to lose their teeth at a young age for some reason...and I know, she probably would be in running in an ugly dog contest but her personality would make up for her looks.
