9. Chinese Crested
The Chinese Crested is an Asian breed of dog most widely known by its hairless variety, but also loved in its powder puff form, which shows off this breeds trademark fringed ears and stockings, but has a short poodle-like coat. The Chinese Crested can stand at up to 12 inches and weighs 10 pounds or less at a healthy body weight. With a life span of up to 12 years, this fairly rare breed of dog is the most popular of all hairless varieties and is good with children. Although it is named after the Chinese people who located the breed and nurtured it to its glory, the Chinese Crested is actually from Africa, and was taken back to China during trade excursions where it was bred to be the way it is seen today.
