Our goal is to encourage and promote the responsible breeding of pure-bred Chinese Cresteds and to do all possible to bring their natural qualities to perfection, in accordance with the standards for the breed. To do all in our power to protect and advance the interests of the breed and to encourage sportsmanlike competition at dog shows, obedience trials and other events.

We hope you enjoy your visit and find the information you need.

The Chinese Crested was in the Miscellaneous Class of the American Kennel Club in 1955 when the first breed list was printed in the American Kennel Club Dog Show Rules. The revised list in 1965 dropped the Chinese Crested due to lack of an acceptable registry, no National Specialty Club or reliable standard. At the time there were 200 Chinese Cresteds registered.

Ardent friends and supporters of the breed formed the American Chinese Crested Club in 1979. A reliable Standard was developed as well as a dependable Registry. Through intense work and commitment to the breed by the membership of the American Chinese Crested Club, the Chinese Cresteds were once again able to compete in the Miscellaneous Class at American Kennel Club shows starting in September 1985. Chinese Cresteds were officially accepted into the Toy Group 1991.

General management of the American Chinese Crested Club is entrusted to the Board of Directors whom are elected to serve two year terms at the club's Annual Meeting.
