Hi all - new here to the forums and owner of a one year old female hairless named Gracie Patch. For some reason everyone has started to call her 'Woo'. 


I am a biologist and science writer focusing on evolution and molecular biology. I've recently written a short and readable article about the genetics of the hairless Crested. You can find it here. Thanks for reading a comments and insights are appreciated!

Great article.  I didn't understand it all but it was very informative.  Thanks for sharing.  P.S.  Gracie Patch is a cutie.

That was very interesting! I have a question, is there science behind why some hairless are more hairier than others? So like true hairless vs moderately hairless vs hairy hairless vs very hairy hairless. Just curious since I have a true hairless, moderately hairy hairless (the first two are littermates), very hairy hairless, a puff, and a terrier coated (not seen much as its considered undesirable though she is 100% crested)
