GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

With the recent frigid temps felt across the nation this January, some animals have had to do a little more to stay warm, at least for some hairless dogs looking for a new home.

Bald Is Beautiful Hairless and Small Breed Rescue, Inc. is based in Greenville, SC, and the organization often posts videos on its Facebook page of the pups it is hoping to find a home for.

But a recent video has taken flight online, with more than 30,000 shares of the Facebook post.

Simply captioned "a "warm-up" dance! by Nathan" the video features one of their dogs dancing in a chair to Madonna's song All I Got is 4 Minutes. Click here to watch the video.

On their website, Bald Is Beautiful says they take in dogs from all over, including owner-surrenders, hoarders and from local shelters.

"Often times, we get a call from an animal shelter that has received one or more hairless dogs. It's a breed less familiar to them, and frequently the shelters are unable to meet their special skin and nutrition needs."

Bald is Beautiful is a national 501c3 non-profit rescue organization that was started in September, 2010 and has placed more than 250 dogs already, according to their website. A spokesperson for the rescue said while they are based in Greenville, they have a network of foster homes across the East Coast.

According to the rescue, Nathan has been adopted but they have other semi-furry friends still in need of homes.
