RESCUE STORY: Nathan The Dancing Dog

Posted by

We're Backkkk...

We love nothing more than receiving your adoption/rescue stories! So, keep them coming by emailing: hope@royaltradeusa.com.

Our next story comes from Tina, who has a very popular dancing dog.

Nathan is a hairless Chinese Crested dog with an infectious joy for life and a captivating talent for dance. Over 24,000 fans follow his playful antics on facebook and the world has watched his youtube videos more than 2 million times. There’s just something about him that makes people happy. I’ve heard “Nathan is magical” and “Nathan makes me smile” more times than I can count.

His journey leading to life in the public eye was long and winding. Before his adoption, he bounced around from shelter to shelter and foster home to foster home. He had major fear aggression. He ended up in Bald is Beautiful Dog Rescue, as one of my fosters. Our connection was so strong that I decided to adopt him. This was two years ago…we believe he is around 8 years old now. His personality has improved SO much that even I’m pleasantly surprised! :-D

Nathan is an active playful dog. His favorite things to do are chase toys in the yard, jump really high, and, as I eventually discovered, wiggle and dance. The dancing is what has made him famous. What started out as a feel-good back rub in a cushy office chair turned Nathan into an internet sensation when a video of him was featured on The Ellen Show. From that point on, Nathan’s dance video was shown on Arsenio Hall, Today Show, The View and Animal Planet along with other news and entertainment programs.

For Nathan and his friends at Bald is Beautiful Dog Rescue, this adventure has drawn positive attention to hairless breed dogs, which include the Chinese Crested, along with the American Hairless Terrier and Mexican Hairless. Although their looks are considered odd to some, Nathan’s growing fan base is discovering what makes them incredibly special: quirky antics, expressive faces and loving personalities.

Because of Nathan, adoptions within the rescue have benefitted; inquiries and interest about the breed has increased and comments have been more positive than ever!!
