Chinese Naakthond



De Chinese Naakthond heeft twee variaties. De ene variant is haarloos op het lichaam, met wat haar op het hoofd, aan de oren, aan de punt van de staart en aan de voeten. De naakte huid voelt zacht aan. De andere variant is de "Powder Puff"; deze honden hebben een ondervacht en een sluierachtige bovenvacht van een zijdeachtige structuur. Alle kleuren zijn toegestaan. Deze beide varianten kunnen in één nest geboren worden.

Het zijn opgewekte, slimme en speelse honden. Wat terughoudend tegenover vreemden. De opvoeding is door zijn slimheid niet moeilijk, hij heeft al snel door wat er van hem verlangd wordt. Met kinderen gaat hij redelijk goed om, mits de kinderen de hond in zijn waarde laten. Met andere huisdieren is hij probleemloos samen te houden.


De naakte huid moet goed verzorgd worden en af en toe gewassen worden met een spons en zachte shampoo. Na het baden insmeren met een uiercreme om de huid soepeler te maken. De honden zijn gevoelig voor zonlicht; aangeraden wordt ze er niet al te lang aan bloot te stellenen en een goede zonnebrandcrème te gebruiken.


De Powder Puff moet zo nu en dan geborsteld worden en mag wat vaker in bad. Het haar op het gezicht wordt in een punt naar beneden geschoren, wat het dier zijn typische uiterlijk geeft.


De reuen zijn iets groter dan de teven, de schouderhoogte is tussen de 23 en 33 cm. De Chinese Naakthond past zich qua beweging aan het gezin aan.

ORIGIN : China.


PATRONAGE : Great Britain.






CLASSIFICATION F.C.I. : Group 9 Companion and Toy Dogs.

Section 4 Hairless breeds.

Without working trial.


BRIEF HISTORICAL SUMMARY: The Chinese Crested Dog comes in two varieties - the Hairless and the Powder Puff. The ‘Hairless’ have a crest of hair on their head extending part way down their neck, ‘socks’ covering their toes, and a plume on their tail. The rest of their body is, as their name implies, hairless. The ‘Powder Puff’ variety is covered entirely with a veil of long soft hair. While it is difficult to pinpoint their origin, it is said that they were owned by families of the Han Dynasty of China. The Chinese Cresteds were developed at this time as guardians of the treasure houses and, in a larger, heavier form, as hunting dogs. They were seen at shows in America from 1885 to 1926 but then were rarely ever seen for some fifty years.
