Hairless dogs really are beautiful

Anyone who is put off by the thought of a hairless dog should give the various breeds a second consideration. When you remove the thick coats of fur, you see the most spectacular parts of the dog in all their glory. Take for example, the Chinese Crested. They do have some long beautiful hair around the head legs and feet. This gives them an exotic appearance and they are considered to be one of the most popular hairless breeds because of their glamorous looks and eye appeal.
