      I had one when I was little. She was such a sweet dog but would growl at strangers who came to close to me when I was a baby.

    I have a Pull/Bichon. He is
    adorable. I keep his fur short or else it really mats bad.

    I own five hairless dogs. They are half Chinese Crested and half Chihuahua. They have very amusing personalities and they love to live closely with their owners. Mine eat and sleep with my husband and I. They love riding around the lake in our golf cart. In fact they are more human than any other dog I have ever owned. In fact we refer to them as our kids. They know us as Nana and Papa and respond to us as the great companions that they are.

    These dogs are interesting and to some they will make good pets or working dogs. But, when it comes to being hailed as a Best in Group/Show type situation, there should be some weighting given to both the popularity and the suitability of the breed to put them on par with more recognized breeds. When their popularity and/or usefulness is proven by the numbers, then they should be recognized as contestants in multi breed shows. For any given show year, allow participation from the top XX number of breeds in each group and the X number of fastest growing breeds in each group.
