Charles's Story...
Hi there, I'm Charles! Me and my buddy Lenard here are both 12 year old Chinese Crested dogs. We are now in our golden years and would love to spend our days going for leisurely strolls and relaxing at home. Lenard and I are best friends, he really depends on me because he is blind. I show him around and give him the confidence he needs, so we will have to be adopted together as the great pair we are!

Although hairless dogs have been found in many places in the world, it is unlikely that the origins of the modern Chinese crested are in China.[12] The breed was believed by some to have originated in Africa and was called the African Hairless Terrier in several 19th Century texts, however, there is genetic evidence that shows a shared origin with the Mexican Hairless (Xōlōitzcuintli).[13] The current name of the breed likely comes from their use on Chinese ships as ratters. They are also believed to have been bred as a companion for invalids and as such can remain healthy with little exercise. (Wikapedia; 2016)

Charles and Lenard are senior dogs. If you are a senior human, age 60+ ask us about our "Seniors for Seniors" program here at The Humane Society of Sedona" and we will help you anyway we can so you can take them home today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Charles, a Sedona Chinese Crested dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chinese Crested for sale in Sedona, or seeking a Chinese Crested dog from a breeder in Sedona.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sedona already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Sedona breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chinese Crested breeders who help with Chinese Crested rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sedona paves the way for another one to be saved.
