Contrary to its name, the Chinese Crested is actually related to the Mexican Hairless. They were named for their popularity as ratters on Chinese trade ships. Today’s Chinese Cresteds are all descended from two lines, one of which was preserved by the famous burlesque performer Gypsy Rose Lee. Chinese Crested dogs often rank highly in the “World’s Ugliest Dog” contest, although many of them are beautiful to behold.
