|That's odd! I haven't heard of specific age requirements for adopters, other than that they be at least a legal adult, which you are.
I actually found Tucker, my Powderpuff CC, at my hometown humane society. It was a happy accident - I wasn't looking for a Crested, I just fell in love with him.
Obviously Petfinder would be a good place to start, and in the meantime do as much research on the breed as you can. Go to dog shows, chat with breeders. Sometimes breeders have dogs that are failed or retiring show dogs that they want good homes for. There will usually be a spay/neuter contract as part of the adoption agreement, and almost always some sort of adoption fee.
Wherever you eventually find your Crestie, while you are waiting and looking, research, research, research. That way when you find the dog you want to adopt, you'll be able to dazzle the rescue organization or the breeder with how much homework you've done.
Good luck - Cresteds are amazing!
