Just rescued another little guy from animal control. About eight months old. Horribly malnourished. Someone dropped him in the night drop box at our animal control. Super hyper, scared, skittish, hungry even after eating, not housebroken, was not neutered but is now. These are not great dogs for Alaska's long winters but they do okay with a wardrobe and booties. My first rescue came to me six years ago as a young, three month old, and was alone in the cold May weather. He was extremely ill. Ran into a warehouse and was mistaken for a rat at first.
He is a coby build, possibly a mix, and very happy and healthy.
The new one presents more of a challenge. I need to give him some time before I am able to see who he really is. Any advice is appreciated. He has been wormed. Will get him checked again next week.
So glad to be a part of this group.

Crush has/had a few Canadian members who may be able to offer advice on keeping Cresties in northerly climes.
I'm afraid I haven't got any advice on dealing with his skittishness, beyond trying to be a calm presence yourself.

Welcome to Crush, by the way.
Put a sane man alone in a room with a teacosy, and it is only a matter of time until he puts it on his head.

Welcome, I live in Alberta Canada and we get pretty cold here, as long as they are dressed and feet covered they seem to handle the cold fairly well for short periods of time.

East Coast Canada can also be cold, but thankfully not for as long as you must have to deal with!!! Welcome here, and So glad these little ones have someone looking out for them now! They really are sensitive creatures, both physically and emotionally, I cannot imagine what some of these little troopers have gone through in their lives!

Sorry, I am in S FL and my hairless get cold in the mid of summer (96 degrees during the day and 80+ at 5:00 am) with the AC and ceiling fans goings.  I've always wondered how northern Cresteds manage?!

 

Thanks for rescuing.  Maybe you could post a pic?

well...I don't know about anyone else's crested...but mine is kinda weird in cold weather......he won't wear clothes-and believe me , I've tried! He goes outside in the cold and doesn't even shiver.....BUT....he hates snow on his feet . So ...as long as I have a place cleared, he goes out with no problems.
