Osbournes Bid on Rescue Puppy at Charity Auction

He’s a little bundle who cost a big wad of cash, but Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne— the new high-profile parents of a lovable Yorkshire Terrier– will no doubt discover that this rescue Rover’s love is priceless.

Rock’s Prince of Darkness proved that he’s a Prince of hearts as he bid for a new buddy to “Bark at the Moon” with during a live auction at the 13th annual Design Care in Beverly Hills, a star-filled evening in support of The HollyRod Foundation, an organization founded by The Talk‘s Holly Robinson- Peete and her husband Rodney Peete to provide assistance to families affected by Parkinson’s disease and autism. According to PeoplePets.com, Ozzy Osbourne won the collective hearts of the crowd when he placed a winning bid of $10,000 for the tiny tail-wagger, who is now known as Charlie.

Following the philanthropic event, proud new pet parent Sharon Osbourne happily confided to fans on Twitter: “Attended HollyRod’s “DesignCare” charity event last nite w Ozzy. We had a brilliant nite &Ozzy bought a rescue (Yorky) puppy. Quite fabulous”

    Find it totally disgusting that somebody would actually auction off a puppy. They should be ashamed. I will never support a chartiy that would do something like this.

    • Dreena Maine

      I agree. No one is checking out where the dog is going to live. Just because they have money, they have a right to the dog. Wrong! Any one that allows a dog to poo in the house and they are not teaching the dog any thing, does not deserve to have a dog at any price!

  • I personally have to question whether or not the puppy is in fact a rescue dog at all. I don’t know of a single rescue group or shelter that would be willing to just let their dog get auctioned off to the highest bidder. Even if it’s for a good cause, and the bidder is a celebrity.
