Chinese Hairless Crested
Born: 10/05/2007
17 lbs

Poor Ozzie has had it pretty rough in his short life so far. Besides being bald and having a bad comb over resulting in perpetual bad hair days, he was mistreated and neglected. He was kept outdoors chained 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in a town in Texas. When he was finally rescued he was found to be heart worm positive. Soon he was on his way to HUA where his rescuers knew he would be safe, loved and well cared for. Ozzie came through his heart worm treatment ok and is doing great. He loves being indoors with his warm blankets and sweaters when it is cold (which is much of the time in Nebraska). Ozzie has a great deal of energy and is a spunky, happy young man. He is so grateful to be rescued! He doesn't care much for the company of other dogs but he loves the people. He even lets us do goofy things with his hair. He can't wait for his favorite friends to come visit and give him loving and play time. Ozzie is a super fun dog...just so entertaining! Ozzie has heard stories about how Chinese Hairless Crested dogs get entered into the ugliest dog competitions on Animal Planet, and he thinks he would prefer not to participate in anything like that. He would rather have people who will boost his ego and tell him he is beautiful, in spite of the fact that he is follically challenged.

His Buddy, Barbara Floodman, from Shrewsbury, MO, sent him this message: "Dear Ozzie, I have a puppy mill Chinese Crested named Boogee, and he does not like other dogs either. Boogee and I pray that you will soon be adopted and snuggling under the blankets, like Boogee does every night. Your haircut is lovely! Just like my little boy's. May you go home soon. Love, Barbara and Boogee!!!" Ozzie sends Barbara lots of cuddles and hugs, and hopes he is as lucky as Boogee and finds a wonderful home, too!

Thanks for Visiting Our Animals!

Hearts United for Animals is a national no-kill shelter, sanctuary and animal welfare organization. Hearts United for Animals does long distance adoptions if there are safe flights and we have volunteers in the area to do a home visit. We require an application, references and a home visit to adopt one of our dogs. Our dogs are all spayed or neutered and are current on health care. We can cat test a dog if requested. If you are interested in adopting a dog, we can give you more information on each dog if you click the Adoption Info & Application link above. Buddies are people who support the dog and send them love while they are waiting for their new home. The dog does not live with the buddy.
