PLEASE PREVENT HEART WORM DISEASE

Elvis was a beautiful, joyous little dog.  He had spent his
entire life, 3 years, in a hoarder's backyard in a little cage.  
He lived a lonely existence with no love or affection until
he was turned over to our rescue, and his happy new life
began.  He learned about toys, which he absolutely loved,
and soft beds.  His days were filled with running around
exploring all the wonders of his new life of freedom.  You
couldn't find a happier little soul.

Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with heart worm disease
from being unprotected for those 3 years.  He underwent
grueling heart worm treatment and handled it like all like a
trooper.  Sadly, treatment is very dangerous, and Elvis
tragically lost his battle against the disease.  

Heart worm disease is painful and nearly always fatal, yet it
is so easy and inexpensive to prevent.  An annual heart
worm test and monthly preventative are all it takes to
protect your dog.  PLEASE don't let your dog face the
dangers of heart worm-keep them on heart worm
preventative.  Elvis's death will not be in vain if people
can learn about the dangers of the disease and make sure
they protect their dogs because of his story.  And that
would make Elvis very happy indeed.

Meet Harry (right)! He was found wandering the streets in the winter wearing a
filthy pair of pajamas that had to be cut off of him. Harry has liver issues and needs
daily meds and occasional blood tests to check his progress. 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 5/20/14: Harry visited the vet today and is doing fantastic!  In addition to his
weight gain, he has lots of energy now, and is very cheerful and feeling good!  He
enjoyed his day out and spent the ride looking out the window with great interest.
He had a good time greeting everyone at the office, too. He is doing great and our
hope is that one day soon, he may be completely well.  He's coming along!

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!

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 that we care for. Thank you!!
Mission Statement
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.
Adorable brothers Jai and Joey have just
arrived, and they are the sweetest dogs you
will ever meet! They are just a year old and
are wishing so hard that someone will choose
them. If you are looking for a pair of true
velcro dogs who just want to be with you all
the time, this is the pair for you  Look at those
smiles!  See more about them
