This sponsorship was for Hoover who has since been adopted! From Facebook: “You may not meet a more unique dog than Hoover! Hoover is an 11-year-old, 9-lb. purebred Chinese crested who found his way to City of Elderly Love along with a number of his housemates after their owner became ill and could no longer care for them. Hoover is one-of-a-kind and will happily be your weird-looking little shadow! From his bat-like ears, his tongue that’s usually peeking out from his mouth, and his shaggy little coif, there’s nothing not cute about Hoover. He absolutely loves to play with his human buds and also enjoys being picked up and cuddled. This little goofball will keep you laughing every day! He is also guaranteed to have people stop you on the streets so they can fawn all over him — and he’ll gladly accept!

“Hoover lived with a number of small dogs (all Chinese cresteds) most of his life, and while he loved playing with his sister, since coming to City of Elderly Love, he’s shown us that he enjoys his space and doesn’t love other dogs up in his face, especially larger males. He’s totally happy to be your one an only but may also do well with a smaller female dog. He lived with a cat in his previous home but we have not seen him interact with any since he came to the rescue.”
