And you think you are having a bad hair day? HA!

I ran across this guy today at one of my listings, isn't he something? I don't think I will ever complain again about having a bad hair day though....

Bad hair day dog

Good thing he is a bit shy, he will probably be under the couch hiding when the condo is being shown. Otherwise I am thinking the buyers will be so busy looking at him they won't be looking at the condo!

Or maybe I could rent this guy out... for those homes that perhaps might need something buyers will remember. Because I have to say, when you see this little guy you will not soon forget him!

Is this one of those "so ugly only a mother could love" or... "so ugly he's cute" scenarios? Whichever one it is, I have to say, I could go for one of these little guys!

Isn't that dog worth thousands of $$$ - at least words!  Most importantly:  What a FAB picture!!!

OH dear...what "is" it?  lol  I agree Andrea...Only a face a mother could love!  lol  I'm sure he's/she's loveable as can be!

Reminds me...I had an ex sis in law (God rest her soul)...the family had a Mexican Hairless...she called that dog the "bald Spanish bitch"   lol

Ellie, LOL, awww.. come on... tell me this isn't a cutie patootie!

Julia, but would you use this dog when you are staging? For a theme?

Karen, LOL, I think that is a fitting name for a hairless! This guy is adorable, makes me laugh every time I see him.

Richard, yep, in his own way to say the least, thanks!

Gary, could be, now that you mention it, LOL. And yes, these dogs suffer from big dog syndrome, or so they think they are.

Martha, you got that right! :D

I'm thinking he thinks he's looking DANDY!  My little shitsu used to prance around every time he came home from the groomer - kind of like LOOK AT ME - I AM SOOOOO HANDSOME!

I suspect he's a very expensive dude.  So strange he's actually cute.  He sure can't hide any flaws!

Awhhhh, in a strange sort of way, this little fella is kinda cute.  He does have a bit of a bad hair thing going but he has the cutest face. 

Posted by Vickie Slade, Service You Can Trust ~ Someone You Can Depend On (Colorado Landmark, Realtors) over 7 years ago

Well I'd love to say ahhh, he is so cute.  But I think I'd be fibbing.  I guess I just like hair.

You know there has got to be something wrong with people who breed dogs to look like this.

Andrea, definitely a pooch thatneeds the equivalent of Rogain or canines or a less stiff grooming brush.

Charlie Bee had one of those awhile back. I got the shot.

Posted by Steven L. Smith, Bellingham WA Home Inspector (King of the House Home Inspection, Inc.) over 7 years ago

This definitely falls in the "so ugly he's cute" category.  LOL  And you're right...the buyers will DEFINITELY remember his home!  LOL

Posted by Lina Robertson, REALTOR® Serving Springfield, Nixa and Ozark, MO (RE/MAX Solutions and RE/MAX House of Brokers) over 7 years ago

Andrea I see just what you mean, he is memorable.  I would be one of those who could not take my eyes off him.  Isn't real estate funny? the things we see.

He is a very adorable animal. Tessa says she`d like to have a sniff to see if he is real.

Andrea, He is one that you don't see everyday!

A Mexican Hairless in CT?  He must freeze in the winters!

Andrea, they to put some cloths on that little guy.  No wonder he was hiding .............. LOL

Posted by George Souto, Your Connecticut Mortgage Expert (George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages) over 7 years ago

That cut is just plain silly.  If I were that dog, I would hide until the hair grew back.  Crazy.

Posted by Michael Delaware, REALTOR®, CRS, GRI (North Sky Realty LLC) over 7 years ago

Andrea,  Memorable...yes.  Good photo...absolutely!

Posted by John McCarthy, Realtor - Seacoast NH (Bean Group Portsmouth NH) over 7 years ago

Oh Andrea, he is just too cute and he loves your attention!!  My Mom's friend has one of those and dresses it all up in different outfits!!

Posted by Al & Peggy Cunningham, Brokers, Our Family Wants To Help Your Family! (RE/MAX West Realty Inc., Brokerage) over 7 years ago

So cute.  I had to look at him twice, though, either a very expensive breed, or a very interesting mix?

Someone made this little guy look this way on purpose??

I have never found hairless animals very eye appealing.

Posted by Steven L. Smith, Bellingham WA Home Inspector (King of the House Home Inspection, Inc.) over 7 years ago

Andrea, for me it is definitely "this one is so ugly, it is cute". He's got a character, and yes, you will remember the puppy
