Chinese Crested Dogs
The Chinese crested dog received a great deal of fanfare when “Sam,” a Hairless variety, won the distinction of being the World’s Ugliest Dog from 2003 to 2005.
Sam may have had a face only his mother could love, but love for the breed is what made it thrive when near extinction more than 100 years ago. The breed has a very interesting background that may surprise many, including the fact that it’s not always hairless.
As with any pet, be sure to regularly consult a veterinarian for routine care and medical advice for your four-legged friend.
