Chinese Crested / Dachshund Mixed Breed Dogs

Information and Pictures

A small tan dog with peach fuz hair on his back and face and longer cream colored hairs down his legs and on his beard sitting down on a brown and tan blanket.

"This is Bentley, part Chinese Crested, part Dachshund AKA Crestoxie. He is naturally hairless, no shaving or grooming at all. I think he is the best of both breeds, not as tall and lankly as a Chinese Crested and not as short and fat as a Dachshund. He has golden eyes and a lovely little beard. Bentley is about 8 years old in this picture."

Other Names
  • Crested Doxie
Description

The Crestoxie is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Chinese Crested and the Dachshund. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Soya the hairless Crestoxie puppy is wearing a pink collar, standing on a rust colored leopard print chair and looking at the floor

"This is my dog Soya as a 10-week-old puppy. Her mother was a Chinese Crested and her father was a longhaired Dachshund. She listens very well and understands what I want or do not want her to do. She learns new things quickly and likes to learn new tricks. She adores children and gets along well with other cats and dogs."
