Lexie the Powderpuff

This week’s Klip Joint dog of the week is Lexie, a grey and white Chinese Crested powderpuff. There are two distinct varieties of the Chinese Crested Dog, the “hairless” and the “powderpuff.” The powderpuff variety is a beautiful dog with a full coat of fur and many people do not realize they exist because a lot of websites only show the hairless variety. Both varieties are equally recognized by the major kennel clubs. The Chinese Crested originated in Africa where they were called “African Hairless Terriers.”

Chinese Cresteds are very clean, with no doggie odor. Powderpuffs need a lot more grooming. Daily brushing of the powderpuff’s long, fine, double coat is recommended, taking extra care when the dog is shedding. The wooly undercoat becomes matted if neglected.

Lexie was so happy to be at the Klip Joint, she smiled for the camera!
