Choosing the Best Dog Food for an Overweight Chinese Crested

Originating in China, the Chinese Crested was bred to withstand the harsh winters and rugged terrain. There is some controversy over the Chinese Crested's origin as most hairless breeds originated in Africa. The Chinese Crested was revered for its ability to maintain vermin control on ships and on farms. Because the Chinese Crested requires nominal exercise to remain healthy, they were often paired with intellectually impaired adults. This tiny breed can weigh in at less than 8 pounds and often stands less than one foot tall. The Chinese Crested has hair feet with very long toes.

Left to their own devices, the Chinese Crested's diet consisted mainly of barn vermin and rats. Because they are hairless, the Chinese Crested's skin requires the same care and moisturizing as human skin. Moisturizer and sunscreen are needed to maintain skin health. Not a breed with high energy, the Chinese Crested is a great choice for city dwellers in small apartments. This playful breed is still spotted at docks and ports across the world. Great family they are revered not only for their beauty and attentiveness but also for their lack of shedding. Most Chinese Crested today are rather spoiled with meals ready and waiting from their loving owners. Given their reduced activity level and diminutive size, strict portion control is important for the Chinese Crested to maintain a healthy weight.
