Chinese crested

a very small (6 to 12 lb), fine-boned dog with a hairless body. Small numbers of long hairs are present on the lower legs, tail and the head where they are called the 'crest'. The hairlessness is a dominant trait and specimens of the breed are heterozygotes, the homozygous dominant state being lethal prenatally. The longhaired offspring (homozygous recessive) of crosses are called 'powderpuffs'.
