|We were thrilled and honored to be asked to
have our foster dogs participate in the Secret
Santa program of the Crested Crush internet
group. Our little ones received tons of
wonderful presents that they can take with them
to their forever homes in the future. We are very
grateful to all the donors for being so kind and
generous to little dogs who had nothing of their
own in their past lives. Thank you, Crested

|Meet Harry! He was found wandering the streets wearing a filthy
pair of pajamas that had to be cut off of him. Harry currently has
liver issues and needs daily meds and tests until he gets
stabilized. As always, Bare Paws is up to the challenge, but we
need your help. If visitors to the site would donate $1 or $2, we
could ensure that Harry gets all the help he needs. He has been
let down a lot in life, and now is his chance to shine. Won't you
please consider helping Harry? Thank you!!
UPDATE: Harry has gained 2 lbs since getting proper care! So it
looks like treatment is starting to work, but he still has a long
way to go, and funds are still desperately needed for all his
ongoing tests and medications. Thank you!
|Bare Paws has some GREAT new items for
sale! Seatbelt safety straps, adorable disposal
bag carriers, belly bands and more-check it

our foster dogs

|ABOUT PUPPY MILLS
This is Amy, a sweet little Chinese Crested girl who
spent many years in a puppy mill, producing repeated
litters of puppies. She lived in a little cage in a barn
with no sunlight, no exercise, and, saddest of all, no
affection or love. Fortunately, she was one of the lucky
ones who was rescued from her situation. But there
are still millions of dogs living hopeless lives in puppy
mills. Since the majority of mills sell their puppies to
pet stores, the best way to put an end to puppy mills is
to stop buying puppies at pet stores. You are not
"rescuing" that puppy, you are creating a larger
market for the puppy millers. Please consider rescue
and help bring an end to the deplorable puppy mill
trade. Amy was one of the lucky ones-she got out. Her
days are now filled with sunshine. Please help others
who haven't been so lucky-yet.
|Chinese Cresteds are a lively little breed who enjoy a
variety of activities. Here is River enjoying just a few:
|Cresteds are very festive little dogs, too! Here are
Geoffrey and Pony Boy celebrating the Fourth of July!
|Unlike some rescues, Bare Paws takes in every dog in need that we are able to,
regardless of what they may require. While some rescues will only accept young,
healthy, easily adoptable dogs, Bare Paws has never turned a dog away because of
medical conditions. At right is Zola, who is an older girl, diabetic and requiring daily
insulin shots. She is also nearly blind, but we did not hesitate to take her. But the
veterinary costs for all the special needs dogs we take in can be astronomical, so
donations are always desperately needed and greatly appreciated. Please use the
PayPal link below to make a donation to help Zola and the many other special needs
dogs in our care. Thank you!!
We are a group of individuals who are dedicated to the rescue, care and re-homing of
Chinese Cresteds and other hairless breeds in need. We provide compassionate aid,
veterinary care and loving temporary homes while working on finding the ideal permanent
situation for each dog. We also work to educate the public about the breed so that there may
be fewer Chinese Cresteds needing to come into rescue.
|Foster homes are desperately needed! We are
having to turn away many dogs because we
have no room for them. This beautiful girl
(Moxie, left) was scheduled to be put to sleep
but we fortunately had a place for her to go.
Fostering is very rewarding, and the value to
the dogs is immeasurable. Please, if you have
space in your home for a little dog, contact us
today about volunteering.
We thank you and Moxie thanks you!
She is alive today thanks to her foster home.
(Bare Paws covers just the eastern half of US. If
you are in the west, we hope you will find a
rescue near you to volunteer with).
