    People are usually intrigued by the Crested but they never just run up and start petting they usually start chatting about the breed first then ask to pet him, or at worst, hold their hand out for him to sniff. We have been lucky.
    Maybe it's because of small dogs bad reputations for biting? Not sure, but Cyrus adores people.
    There are always questions you get sick of answering but I have to try and remember that people are curious and not to get snippy (unlike my mum with her 'put a saddle on it' Great Danes lol)
    The regular questions for Cresteds are Do you shave them? and Do you need to put sunscreen on them? Throw in a little 'Bet you have a lot of doggy jackets' and you have the trifecta
    People are so predictable in their respondse to my TM's also, wow the red dog(Bubba) looks like a bear, it must cost a fortune to feed them, wow who's leading who(not that they pull it's just about their size) & bet they like the aircon or how do they handle the heat, lol............

    As to interfering with my dogs.........Never, as I said, we have a look
    I am in my early 20's and I get people coming up and telling about the breed of dog I have all the time. I just agree... but it is so annoying! I know about my breed, otherwise I wouldn't have got one.
    And because I have a ACD I always get people comparing my dogs breed with bad experiences they have had or heard with other dogs of the same breed. I sometimes correct people and mention that its not just about the breed, a dog can also say alot about its owner and some people just role their eyes at me and say "You'll see when he grows up".

    I grew up with ACD as a kid and they were the most friendly dogs... yes mindful of strangers but never aggressive.

    Some people are just so rude!
    I would never just walk up and start patting someone elses dog without permission!
