Hi there! My name is Braxton and I am an absolutely adorable 12 week old, male Chinese Crested puppy. I weigh about 10 lbs, am up to date on my shots and vaccines and am considered a "hairy hairless". My colours are black, white, and tan. I am considered a "tri colour", and am told that that makes me extra special... (like I didn't already know that!) Since coming into foster care, I have been learning about playing with other dogs, playing with toys, and even going outside. I'm pretty good with my paper training and with time and patience; I will learn to do my business outside all the time. I love to run around and chew my chew toys and I love to receive lots of snuggles from my foster mom and dad. I sleep through the night, eat all my food at meal times and would be easily trained to sleep in a crate. Well, I know my foster mom wants to say a few things about me as well...
Braxton is one of two brothers we are currently fostering. He is a sweet little guy and loves life. Braxton is a healthy dog, however, he does have one eye that does not produce tears on its own. Because of this, he requires eye drops three times a day. They are quite easy to administer and Braxton has become used to this being part of his daily routine. Both my husband and I work full time, so one of us comes home at lunch and gives him his drops mid day. The drops are about $68.00 for a three month supply- that might sound like a lot, but just consider that a poodle (and we have three of them!) has to be groomed every 6 weeks at a cost of about $45 per groom. By comparison, it’s really not that much money. Braxton is otherwise, a happy and healthy pup.
Braxton will require an owner who will take him to obedience training and he will also require a little more care than other breeds. Cresteds require regular bathing, application of sunscreen and sometimes natural moisturizers to protect their exposed skin. Due to the fact that they have very little hair, Cresteds are considered an excellent breed for people with allergies. He will also require sweaters, coats and even long sleeved t-shirts and leggings for the winter months. Cresteds make excellent family pets, are considered highly trainable and are very loyal to their families. If you are interested in adopting this sweet little guy, please contact us for further information and to request an application. The love and companionship that he will bring you will be truly priceless.
