Nathan the Dog Dances Gangnam, Becomes Viral Sensation [Video]

There is a dog video that was put up on a Facebook page for a dog rescue organization in the state of South Carolina that has become a viral sensation, thanks to Nathan the dog. He is the star of the video, a hairless puppy that was in need of a forever home. The dog rescue organization posted the video of Nathan as he was dancing on a chair and it began to spread all across the internet like wildfire.

Because of this, little Nathan has finally gotten himself a home, and he has also brought Gangnam Style back in style. The video is embedded at the bottom of this article so anyone interested in seeing what fuss Nathan has made is welcome to watch him. Many are enjoying this fun gander at the little canine that started bringing the Gangnam dance craze back to the masses.

Even though he may be known as Nathan, he wears what little hair he has like Miley Cyrus, and, like her, he likes to shake what he has. He was living at the Bald is Beautiful Dog Rescue. They specialize in helping hairless and  small dogs that are in need of recovery and forever homes. They were in charge of making Nathan’s video and they made a hit.

The clip lasts just under a minute and has the little dog,  a Chinese Crested hairless pup, doing a special dance. He was considered to not be adoptable at one time, and is thought to be around eight years of age. Nathan has suffered with a stormy private life, having been moved from one foster home to another, a total of six in all during the first four years of his life. However, one would never know it now by the way the sweet little dog dances away in a green chair, with various other types of hairless small dogs around him.

Nathan is a great little guy, but had to go through lots of recovery and much training and love in order to get him to where he is at this day and time, according to Ellen Westkaemper, one of the members of the Bald Is Beautiful functioning committee.

The little dog was rescued back in 2008 and then adopted by his foster family, says his biography which is online. But after approximately a year, they gave him up to yet another rescue agency. He made his way to the South Carolina organization around two years ago and was just recently placed into a very loving and happy home.

Nathan’s video featuring his dance was first put up on the Bald Is Beautiful Hairless and Small Breed Facebook page during the first week of January, 2013. The non-profit rescue organization frequently runs videos of dogs in need on the social network to help find homes for them.

In just over a year, Nathan’s video has received over 130,700 views  and shares and has even been shown on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show. It is good to know he has a forever home now.
