Meet Amy, our Bare Paws Rescue mascot. She is the reason we started the group.
This beautiful girl 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 or online, the best way to put an end to
puppy mills is to stop buying puppies at pet stores and research breeders carefully.
You are not "rescuing" that pet store puppy, you are creating a larger market for the
puppy millers. Please consider rescue. Amy was one of the lucky ones-she got out.
Her days were finally filled with sunshine. Please help others who haven't been so lucky-yet.
Amy sadly went to the Rainbow Bridge on 1/19/16. She enjoyed over 9 years in her
loving forever home and treasured every moment of her new life.

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 maybe fewer Chinese Cresteds needing
to come into rescue.
