HAIRLESSNESS – #8 SUPER HAIRY HAIRLESS

GLAMOR DOGS OF THE HAIRLESS WORLD.

LEVEL OF HAIRLESSNESS:  A super hairy hairless #8 looks very much like a powderuff at birth with skimpier hair on the arm pits. But is it is not until they are at least 5 weeks when we will know if they are a powderpuff or a super hairy Crested. Like #9, these puppies are born with a lot of hair on their body. We check the amount of hair around the groin area, the arm pit, neck and chest. Super hairy hairless puppies will have less hair in these area. In the groin area, the hair will start further up the belly. In boys, the hair starts above the tip of the penis while in the powderpuffs, the hair starts below the tip of the penis. These puppies can have sparse hair covering most of their belly and inner thigh area. As they get older, around 4-6 weeks, we flip through hair and see if there is an undercoat. #8 hairless will not have it and each individual hair can be seen.

Most show breeders love when super hairy hairless puppies are born because they will have so much furnishings as an adult. They have tons of “flash” with furnishings growing long and flowing. They buzz and then shave them down and in movement, they seem to float through the air. It’s very glamorous and because breeders keep breeding for them and showing them, it becomes the breed standard. Judges keep seeing them in the show ring and reward the best of the super hairy hairless Cresteds. Most examples of Chinese Cresteds most people see on the internet or in pictures are the super hairy hairless Cresteds, #7 and #8 being the most popular.

People who love the lush furnishings and don’t want to feel bare skin will adore the super hairy hairless. Our daughter love them or powderpuff as she prefers to feel soft hair all over while enjoying the sweetness, charm and beauty of a Crested.

Prince Banjo and Prince Calisto are example of #8.

PRINCE CALISTO BEFORE AND AFTER GROOMING PHOTO SHOW

Prince Calisto is a rare dark chocolate colored #8. You can see him before he was buzzed on the left collum and on the right he is groomed. Since he has dark chocolate hair, his skin can be easily seen after he has been buzzed. You can click on each picture to take a closer look.

GROOMING:  Grooming a Level 8 super hairy hairless Cresteds is very easy. It would seem to require more grooming but as they have so much body hair, their parents have more options. They can either buzz them down to a nudy cut on a regular basis or let it grow out as long as they want. When they get a close nudy cut, the skin can be seen and each hair can be seen. The body hair feels very soft and as it grows, feels very nice. The skin and it’s markings can be seen after the body hair has been buzzed. Other breeders and show people will buzz and shave a #8 but we only use a buzzer. This does not cause ingrown hair or other problems. The body hair an be trimmed every 2 months or or so if you ave doing a nudy cut or a puppy cut. #8 hairless onese never look messy if their body hair is kept long. They do require regular washing and if the body hair is kept long, they require regular hair brushing. Because they don’t have the double coat of a powderpuff, their hair tangles less so they can be brushed out weekly verses almost daily for a powderpuff with long hair.

    Hi. Thank you for updating us on Cici and Sir Oli. Yes, the super hairy ones turns heads. Cici having less body hair is not everyone’s cup of tea. But then again, she probably get lots of attention due to her tiny size. Happy to hear the Mythic ones and non Mythic Cresteds live happily. Thanks for being such great Puppy Parents. Kisses.

    Cici and Sir Oliver are just amazing! Olie is as you and Tim said turned out to be one of the most gorgeous Crested ever! We get stopped every where when he goes out with us. With all of his furnishings, he stops traffic! He looks like a teacup Clydesdale horse. Even with Cici and our other Crested kids in tow, he is the one that get’s the most fans. He did end up being 6 pounds which is just wonderful. He is so close to Cici who is 4 1/2 pounds. They both get along famously with Boo and Lance even though they tower over them. Everyone thinks they are Boo and Lance’s puppies. It takes us time to explain they are adults and just much smaller. We so adore them. Thank you for letting us be their parents. You two are such amazing breeders.
