Crested Tzu dog (Chinese Crested/Shih Tzu)

The Crested Tzu is a mix between a Chinese Crested and a Shih Tzu purebreds. They are called hybrid dogs. The characteristics of the Crested Tzu can be determind by studying the parent breeds.

A comparative study of the parent breeds shows that the Crested Tzu dogs are small size dogs having a height not more than 13 inches and weighing around 15 pounds. They are alert, cheerful and loving dogs. They can be found in different colours having different types of coats.

These dogs are loving and cheerful dogs that are good with children and should make good family pets.


The Crested Tzu dogs are found in a few colours like black, brown and white.

Their coat depends on whether they inherit hairless trait or powderpuff trait from Chinese Crested parent breed. If they inherit hairless trait, these hybrids will have hair only on head and ears. On the other hand, if they inherit powderpuff trait, they will have silky and fine hair all over their body.

The Crested Tzu dogs are very loving and affectionate dogs. Both parent breeds of these hybrids are good to children and they are not different either. They are cheerful and loving dogs who are eager to please the owner. These dogs are very good companion and family dogs.

They may show stubborn streak occassionally but can be dealt with consistant training and food rewards. They are social dogs who get along well with other pets and dogs. They are generally good with guests although need to be trained from puppyhood to be social.

They make good companion dogs for elderly people as well.

If the Crested Tzu is hairless type, they would require sunscreen when going out in the sun.

If they are powderpuff type, they may need freequent grooming and regular brushing.

Not very difficult to train, these hybrids may show stubborn behaviour sometimes. This can be dealt with consistant training sessions accompanied by food rewards.

They need moderate level of exercises. A daily walk or playing session in the yard should take care of their exercise needs. They are difficult to housetrain.

Crestoxie dogs

The Cresoxie is a mix between a Chinese Crested and a Dachshund purebreds and are called hybrid dogs. They are small to medium size dogs having weight around 15-28 pounds and standing not more than 18 inches.

A comparative study of the parent breeds shows that these hybrids are alert, social, loyal, courageous and cheerful. These qualities make a very good family dog but one of the parent breed, the Dachshund, is not known for their obedience and good behaviour towards other dogs and pets. On the contrary, these Dachshunds are known to be wilfull and disobeying to their owners. This trait, if dominante in the resultant hybrid, can make them not suitable for families with small children or other pets. If this trait is not dominante, they can make a good family pets.

Color They are found in black, black and tan, brown and red colours.


The Crestoxie hybrids have two types of coats. One is hairless type in which hair are only present on the head, ears and legs of the hybrid. Other one is powderpuff where the whole body is covered with fine and wiry hair.

They can be good family pets if they do not inherit hounding instincts of the Dachshund. They are alert, social, loyal, and courageous but at the same time, stubborn and wilfull. They may or may not be suitable for families with small children. They would need supervision of elders when they are around children or other dogs and pets in the family.

The hairless type needs sunscreen when going out in sun.

The powderpuff type needs freequent grooming and regular brushing.

They are not easy to train. Their wilfull and stubborn behaviour makes them harder to train. They would need a strong packleader who can train them with firm and consistant training sessions.

These hybrids would require fair amount of exercises and playing opportunities.

Cretan Hound dogs


The Cretan Hound is a slender dog, somewhere in the middle between a scenthound and a sighthound in body, particularly light on its feet (that are oval rather than cat-like) and strong in loin, specially adopted for swift reflexes and high speed over dangerous, rocky terrain. The head is wedge-shaped, elongated and dry, with pricked and very mobile ears that fold backwards like a greyhound�s during the chase. (Specimens with semi-pricked or drop ears do occur, and the latter tend to be more sight-houndy in type; there is also a smaller variety, something like a whippet, which little is known about). The skin is fine and tight over the body, sort and of many colors. The tail is a most important breed characteristic, long and curved upwards, forming a loose or tight ring and covered with a brush of longer hair underneath. The dog is slightly longer than tall, with medium angulations, slender legs and good muscle; the ribcage is spacious but neither too broad nor too rounded and it doesn�t quite reach the point of elbow. The loin is slender yet powerful and there is good tuck-up, with the points of the hipbones slightly prominent. There should be a balance between characteristics of speed and stamina, the conformation being a compromise producing great agility. Flabby, clumsy, heavy individuals not to be tolerated. Colors: pure white, cream, sandy, fawn, grey, black or brindle, bi-colored or tri-colored.


The Cretan Hound uses both sight and scent on the hunt and they have a particular tendency to taste the aerial or ground scent, even to the point of sucking it from pebbles and stones. When the prey is sensed, the tail moves in circular fashion and the hound becomes rigid, moments before the chase begins. Meek, affectionate, aristocratic, yet deadly on the chase, it�s a polite hound that comes alive in the presence of prey; clean, gentle, elegant in form and movement, it�s never vulgar or overwhelming in gestures. Slightly reserved with strangers, it�s naturally inquisitive and tolerant. The Cretan Hound lives happily together with other domestic animals but will ruthlessly chase the neighbor�s cat! Excellent, gentle and very affectionate with children. It rarely barks but will give notice of strangers approaching its home; at the farm it will kill mice and rats and it�s not indifferent to feathered game, but the latter use will make the breed lazy and untidy in the hunt; its constitution needs the challenge of the true chase. Make sure you are this dogs calm, but firm, and confident leader providing enough leadership and exercise to produce a well balanced canine companion. Proper human to dog communication is essential.

A fairly healthy breed.

Living Conditions

This breed is not recommended for apartment life. It needs space to run.


Robust and healthy, it�s a breed easy to maintain as long as it has plenty of exercise, which includes a daily walk, where the dog is made to heel beside or behind the human holding the lead, as in a dog's mind the leader leads the way and that leader needs to be the humans. It will also greatly enjoy running free in a safe open space.

About 10-12 years or more.


Brush with a firm bristle brush, and dry shampoo occasionally. Bathe in mild soap only when necessary. Inspect the feet and mouth for damage after work or exercise sessions. Keep the nails trimmed. This breed is an average shedder.


A primitive hunting breed, its existence on the Greek island of Crete is documented in writing and artifacts for at least 3500 years. It was extensively cultivated and used by the Minoan civilization which, at its peak, dominated over most part of the Aegean, the Cyclades islands and eastern Peloponessus. A tracking and coursing hound, it was always used in chasing and catching hare and wild rabbits on the harsh terrains of its native island. The classic authors praised the Cretan hounds (Kressai Kynes) as the best hare-hunters known to man and in the ancient times they were exported to the Greek colonies and other countries in Europe, reaching as far as Spain and the British islands, to mix and improve the local hounds. The dogs have many such peculiar traits and they are evidently a truly ancient species, probably the oldest dog breed in Europe. It is possible that their ancestors came from Africa but they were subsequently adapted to this very unique habitat of Crete, an island remote enough to host other unique species of animals also, such as a unique sub-species of wild goat, lynx and others. Isolated there for millennia, these dogs were formed by function to perform a particular and challenging task and they remained pure and unchanged to this day. Due to a long history of struggle against outside enemies, the Cretan people are a freedom-loving race, proud, independent, somewhat suspicious and even stubborn. They don�t like to give their dogs to outsiders and even to this day the best specimens are kept hidden from the public eye. Breeding practices are ruthless and the limited means of the past taught the locals to neuter all but the best males and destroy the dogs that were lacking in the hunt. This resulted in a particularly strong and healthy breed, but also one very small in numbers. For years they were kept secret and even now they rarely leave Crete, apart from on the rare occasions they take part in International dog shows held in Athens, where the visitors have the opportunity to meet a true living legend.

Croatian Sheep dog


This breed is of lower medium height and the base color is always black, although there may be very small patches of white on its chest and/or toes. A characteristic is the short hairs on its somewhat fox-like head and legs. The remainder of the coat is longer, wavy or curly. The height at the withers in both sexes is between 16 to 21 inches and the length exceeds the height by approximately 10%. Nowadays, some dogs are even taller; that is probably due to better nutrition and an easier life - they grow to their full genetic potential. Traditionally the tail is docked very short but, if undocked, it is more or less curled over the dog�s back.


The Croatian Sheepdog is an alert, agile, keen and intelligent dog with enormous energy and with a strong need for human leadership. It is healthy, resistant to disease and not expensive to keep. It possesses a well developed herding instinct and is an excellent watchdog. An instinctive herder, it is wary of strangers. If socialized early however, it responds well to obedience training. As a pet without early obedience training and exercise, to occupy its athletic body and excellent mind, it can become very noisy, even destructive.

Height: 16-21 inches (40-53 cm.)
Weight: 29-43 pounds (13-20 kg.)

Health Problems : Usually very healthy.

Living Conditions : The Croatian Sheepdog will dog okay in an apartment as long as they get enough exercise. It is a virtually weatherproof canine and a comparably adaptable disposition.

Exercise : Needs a lot of exercise, which includes a daily walk, where the dog is made to heel beside or behind the person holding the lead, as in a dog's mind, the leader leads the way and that leader needs to be the humans. It is a very good breed for all dog sports.

Life Expectancy : About 13-14 years.


This breed is easy to groom. An occasional combing and brushing to remove dead hair is all it needs. This breed is an average shedder.


This is a native Croatian breed and descends from dogs which the Croats brought with them from their original native land into the region they occupy today and which has been continually bred in Croatia, mostly in the fertile plains of Slavonia, from those days onward. According to written documents, the appearance of this breed has not changed greatly from the 14th century to the present day. Probably because it possesses an excellent hereditary instinct for working sheep and cattle, selection on the basis of usability was being carried out spontaneously, which has resulted also in the balance of its look. The earliest written document about Croatian Sheepdogs, named �Canis pastoralis croaticus�, found in the archives of diocese of Djakovo by "father of the breed" - veterinarian Prof Dr Stjepan Romic - is from 1374. In this document, Petar, Bishop of Djakovo, says "the dog is about 18 inches high, with medium long black curly coat, the hair on the head is short, ears are pricked or semi-pricked and it is very good for keeping flocks of all farm animals." He also mentions that the Croats brought the dog with them while migrating from their original native land to Croatia in the 7th century. Romic also found in archive of Djakovo's diocese important information from Years 1719, 1737, 1742 and 1752. In all of these documents the description of the Croatian Sheepdog matches entirely its appearance today and in all of them the dog is named Canis pastoralis croaticus or Croatian Sheepdog. A systematic selection breeding program was started by the same Prof Romic in 1935 with dogs in the territory of Djakovo. After 34 years of work, breed was finally recognized by FCI in 1969.
