This manual describes both varieties of the Chinese Crested dog. One, called the Hairless, has fur only on his head, feet, and tail. The other, known as the Powder Puff, has a long, soft coat. Both varieties share the same playful temperament. This book is a brand-new title in BarronÂ's extensive line of Complete Pet OwnerÂ's Manuals. They advise current and soon-to-be pet owners on the care of dogs and cats of virtually all recognized breeds, as well as on birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, small mammals, and even exotic creatures like tarantulas and sugar gliders. The information in each book is authoritative but the language is non-technical and easy for every pet owner to understand. Every title in this series is individually written from first page to last by a breeder, trainer, veterinarian, or other animal specialist. All Complete Pet OwnerÂ's Manuals are filled with high-quality color photos and instructive line art.
