    Well this morning me and mum went to fetch a little crestie! He is a hairless male aged 2years old!
    He is abit on the skinny side and his skin hasnt been cared for properly so he is covered in massive nasty looking spots and black heads! But nothing that wont improve in time with the right care, love and time! :)

    We are his 3rd home since leaving the breeder and we will be his last! The breeders is fully aware he is now part of our family and is more than happy for him to be here! :eek:

    He hasnt been here long but is already settling in perfectly..Him and kioti are having a few tiff's (nothing bad just a few growls) at the moment but thats the least we expect from two entire males of around the same age..

    His name is now Juno it was Junior but he didnt know it too well and we perfered Juno so changed it.
    I will attach a few picture's later..He isnt looking his best at all sadly :(..

    kerry...:D

    Awww bless! Really looking to the photo's! At least he will be happy and cared for with you. I don't think some people realise just how much work goes into having a Crestie! Some think they will be easy to care for because they have no hair!

    Michelle we didnt know until late last night about him..so it was all quite sudden heard about him and arranged it all about 7/8 o'clock last night and was there this morning!
    The black heads we have always been able to get rid of before by regular bathing and clearasil..Also with a good diet that will improve his skin...ours are feed raw ;)..But on some crestie you will never be able to get rid of them! Also when we nip him to the vets we will have a word with them about spots and see what they can also suggest..our vet is quite good and knows abit about the chinese cresteds! He is from china! :D:D

    Yes sadly people do seem to think they do not need alot of care..:( Witch is a shame because with the right skin care they have the most amazing soft skin!:eek:

    I will get some pictures about in the next hour or so :)

    I'm glad he's got a fantastic new home with you. I can't wait to see pictures but I had no idea they got spots.

    Yes they have to be creamed..Yes kioti's ears are up its in the breed standard that a hairless has to have erect ears were as the puffs can be erect of dropped..
    woohoo another person taken by the cresteds! :001_tt2:

    He is lovely, and I bet it's not long til we get new pics showing us how much he has changed.

    Juno is lucky to have found you and your mum.
