Posted Breed: Chinese Crested-Hairless (short coat). Adoption Application link: http://crest-care.net/forms.htm Fostered in Michigan Jordan, was born 3-29-06 . He is very active, weighs about 14 lbs , kind of long legged, gets along very well with the other dogs and cats in his foster home. He will need an understanding home as he is very shy with people he doesn't know, it took him a while to feel comfortable with his foster parents. He is afraid of long stick things like the new shoehorn foster dad has to get his shoes on with. Jordan will go out the doggy door, look through the window and refuses to come in until the thing is hung up. Same thing with the fly swatter. They have tried holding him on a lap while foster dad put his shoes on and he'll hide his face, he just can't look, he shakes with fear, very sad to see this. He was most likely hit or spanked in his previous home. He seldom has an accident in the house, he is getting better all the time. At first he wanted to mark everything and he has stopped to no longer wears diapers. However, he will most likely want to mark in a new home. He is not crate trained, he loves to sleep in the big bed with his people. Loves taking naps on somebody's lap. He is up to date on all his shots. He does require soft food because he has only one tooth. Jordan is a very active 11 year old, he runs the yard with his border collie siblings. He takes his guard duty very seriously so a fenced yard would be important for him. He is very sensitive, smart, remembers well. Jordan will need an experienced dog owner!!

A.K.A. : A mongrel, mixed-breed dog
Overview: A mongrel, mutt, or mixed-breed dog, is a dog that is not the result of breeding within an existing breed or to modify or create a breed and belongs to no breed. In the United States, the term "mixed-breed" is a favored synonym over "mongrel" among many who wish to avoid negative connotations associated with the latter term. The implication that such dogs must be a mix of defined breeds may stem from an inverted understanding of the origins of dog breeds. Pure breeds have been, for the most part, artificially created from random-bred populations by human selective breeding with the purpose of enhancing desired physical, behavioral, or temperamental characteristics. Dogs that are not purebred are not necessarily a mix of such defined breeds. Therefore, among experts and fans of such dogs, "Mongrel" is still the preferred term.
Breed Group: Unspecified
Country of Origin: Unknown

More About Mutt Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chinese Crested-Hairless (short coat). Adoption Application link: http://crest-care.net/forms.htm Little Tina was found wandering on a highway by herself In New Jersey and was taken to the Atlantic County Humane Society. She was put on hold for two weeks, but no one came to claim her. She was neglected, had bad teeth, and a large growth on her belly. She was rescued by Crest-Care, Chinese Crested Rescue and her life has since changed. All of her medical issues were addressed and taken care of. She is ready to go to her forever home. Tina is between 3 and five years old. We’re not really sure because she was surrendered as a stray. Her personality is guarded and she does get upset when she meets new people. She hides. Foster mom lets her meet new people on her terms and leaves her alone until she is ready. She eventually comes around and will let you pet her. We attribute to her not being socialized and believe that she is just scared. She is not aggressive in any way. In the home she is loving, friendly and a sweetheart who just wants to be loved. Tina lives with one other dog and would prefer a home with no more than 2 dogs. Not sure about cats. She would do fine in a home with very quiet and gentle older children. She bonds quickly to her family, although it did take a week or so for her to settle in. A patient or experienced home would be best. A very quiet and stable home is what she needs. House trained and pad trained. Tina can be left by herself for up to six hours. Tina cannot go into a crate under any circumstance. She throws her body and screams if crated. She has free run of the house and has not disturbed anything. She lies on the sofa and looks out the window most of the day. Tina walks well on a leash. She could use a little additional training. Tina’s favorite food is frozen green beans. Tina is being fostered in Langhorne PA Website: www.crest-care.net

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chinese Crested-Hairless (short coat). Adoption Application link: http://crest-care.net/forms.htm Fostered in North Carolina Spike is a true Hairless Chinese Crested. His birthday is in April, 2006 Spike leads well once you get him started, a few gentle tugs and he'll move. Has occasionally marked in the house but does accept wearing a belly band (with a put up air, "This is so awful and I'm just going to be pitiful." ). He does know how to use a doggy door also but prefers someone open the door for him. Not a big cuddler but does give kisses. He does NOT like having his nails done so I recommend having a groomer or vet do them so he doesn't accidentally get hurt. He gets along with other dogs. He does a sweet yodel when I come home after work and thinks he's a squirrel dog. Spike has all his shots, neutered, dental done and is on heartworm preventative.

      Macon (NC)

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chinese Crested-Hairless. Adoption Application link: http://crest-care.net/forms.htm Fostered in North Carolina Macon is a male hairless Chinese Crested being fostered in North Carolina. He is an adorable little guy with red furnishings and a strong, stout, sturdy build. He almost looks like he might have some dachshund in him the way his body is shaped. He weighs about 16 pounds and was born in 2007. Macon is current on all vaccines, heartworm negative and neutered. Macon is the father of Milo who is also up for adoption. Although Macon and Milo have been together for quite some time, it is not necessary that they be adopted together. Before Macon came into rescue, he was living outside! He is now an indoor dog and loving it! He has adjusted quite nicely to the house and is totally crate trained. He has not had any accidents inside, but is usually supervised when loose in the house. Macon is a very loving silly little guy who wants nothing more than to be loved. He is a totally laid back, low-energy dog once he integrates into the family. Macon is more of a follower—not a leader. He gets along well with other dogs and looks to other dogs for guidance. When Macon is placed by himself, he becomes rather timid and unsure of himself. He would do well in a household with another dog that could guide him. He does not walk too well on a leash if he is walking by himself, but, again, does much better when he can follow another dog. I do not know how Macon behaves around children, but he would probably do ok with older children, but best with adults. He will at times make sounds that I never heard come out of a dog and totally indescribable. Quite unique indeed! He doesn’t bark much but when he does, you will hear quite a hefty, hearty bark that will definitely warn you of anyone approaching. His red-headed temper rises up when strangers approach. He will bark quite protectively and needs to be strongly supervised when around new people until he adjusts to their presence. Macon loves his food and can be a bit snippy toward other dogs that come a little too close to his bowl. He does not have any food aggression toward people. He’s not too fond of getting baths, but is learning to tolerate them. He is quiet while riding in a car but tends to get motion sickness depending on the length of the ride. He is frightened by thunderstorms and wants to be close to his person for comfort during a storm. When Macon first arrived into foster care, he had a very high prey drive and could not be trusted around cats or other small animals. I am very glad to say that he is overcoming his urge to go after the household cats quite nicely and the cats and he are learning to be in the same room at the same time without incidence. I would, however, still not trust him alone with a cat or small animal without strict supervision. Macon is a wonderful little dog who would greatly benefit from individualized attention, training and love to bring out his full potential as a welcomed family member! He will repay you with loyalty and lots of love.
