At first look, the "Hairless", and "Powderpuff" varieties of Chinese crested Dogs appear to be two different breeds,
but hairlessness is an incomplete dominant trait within a single breed The Hairless has soft, humanlike skin, as well
as tufts of fur on its paws ("socks") and tail ("plume") and long, flowing hair on its head ("crest"). In addition to being
an incomplete dominant gene, the "hairless" gene has a prenatal lethal effect when homozygous. Zygotes affected
with double hairless genes (1 in 4) never develop into puppies, and are reabsorbed in the womb. All hairless
Cresteds are therefore heterozygous.

The Hairless variety can vary in amount of body hair. Fur on the muzzle, known as a beard, is not uncommon. A true
Hairless often does not have as much furnishings (hair on the head, tail, and paws). The difference between a very
hairy Hairless and a Powderpuff is that the Hairless has a single coat[3] with hairless parts on the body, while the
Powderpuff has a thick double coat. The skin of the Hairless comes in a variety of colors, ranging from a pale flesh
to black. Hairless Cresteds often lack a full set of premolar teeth, but this is not considered a fault.

A Powderpuff has a long, soft coat. Both Hairless and Powderpuff varieties can appear in the same litter. The look of
the Powderpuff varies according to how it is groomed. When its fur is completely grown out on its face, it strongly
resembles a terrier; however, the Powderpuff is usually shaved around the snout as a standard cut.

The amount of body hair on the hairless variety varies quite extensively, from the true hairless which has very little
or no body hair and furnishings, to what is called a 'hairy hairless', which if left ungroomed often grows a near-full
coat of hair. These hairy hairless are not a mix between powderpuffs and hairless Chinese cresteds, but are merely
a result of a weaker expression of the variable Hairless gene. The mutation responsible for the hairless trait was
identified in 2008.

Chinese Crested: A Comprehensive Guide to Owning and Caring for Your Dog (Comprehensive Owner's Guide)
Distinctive for its hairlessness, the Chinese
Crested is the world's most popular breed of
hairless dog--a curious distinction, for certain.
Beneath its sometimes purple skin is a rare
and delightful canine. Compared to a graceful
prancing pony in miniature, the Chinese
Crested, with its tufted head, feet and tail,
makes a feisty, fun-loving pet for those folk
clever enough to fall in love with a near-naked
dog. The breed, in actuality, comes in two
varieties, with the Powderpuff coated in a soft
veil of hair. For the right owners, the Chinese
Crested makes a loyal and enthusiastic pet,
happily praticipating in sports, outdoor
outings, shows and the like.

This book provides the kind of information
Crested owners require. The author shares
her insight into the breed's characteristics and
personality plus handy first-hand advice about
caring for the breed's skin, coat and teeth.
Owners will welcome the detailed chapter on
house-training and obedience training, all
based on positive training techniques.

Whether it's housebreaking problems, acne,
sunburn or toothaches, this new volume
provides the necessary guidance from
puppyhood through the Crested's senior years.
