Chinese Hairless Crested | Born: Oct 05, 2007 | Weight: 17 lbs. | Gender: Male
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 hair-challenged.

Help this Shelter by making a donation.
Hearts United for Animals is a national no-kill animal shelter, sanctuary and animal welfare organization dedicated to the relief of suffering. We rescue dogs from all over the country and specialize in long distance adoptions. We take the creatures who are lost, afraid, hungry or ill and comfort them, give them a warm, soft bed, good food, medical care and most of all, love.
HUA is a place of happiness, joy and love. Everything we do is in the best interest of the dogs. There are no cages. The dogs have big fields of grass and trees in which to run. Our primary interest is what will make them happy. HUA is a place to celebrate the joy of life.
All of our pets are available for viewing on the internet at www.hua.org. Come read their stories and see their individual pages.
The adoption fee for all dogs is $200.
We require an application (found on our website). We also require a home visit and vet reference check. Fenced yards are required for most dogs. Many of our dogs may not be good with children, or it may depend on the age of the children...please feel free to ask who we would consider good with young ones.
All dogs will come spayed/neutered, heartworm tested, current on vaccinations and heartworm prevention.
We put the welfare of the dogs before all else and are very careful with their placement. Many of our dogs are puppy mill survivors or have otherwise been physically or emotionally traumatized. Our goal is to find them the very best homes possible where they will be loved and adored family members, where they will be kept safe and receive no less than exceptional care for the rest of their lives.
