| Chinese Cresteds come from Africa, not China. Chinese Cresteds get their name from Chinese trading ships that stopped in Africa and picked up the dogs to hunt rats on the ships. The Chinese Crested is one of only four hairless breeds in the U.S. The Chinese Crested was first recognized by the AKC in 1991
