Rocker Ozzy Osbourne has a soft side which he demonstrated on Saturday in Los Angeles at the Design Care event hosted by the HollyRod Foundation. Ozzy saw his wife admiring a rescue dog, more specifically a Yorkshire terrier, which was being auctioned off to benefit Holly Robinson Peete’s foundation which focus on helping families cope with autism and Parkinson’s disease.

‘The Talk’ co-host Sharon Osbourne was heard saying at the event, “That puppy is divine!” Ozzy seeing his wife’s delight at the adorable pooch quickly got in on the bidding. The opening bid for the Yorky was $5,000, but although others continued to bid on the pup Ozzy kept up the bidding until it ended with him writing a five figure check in the amount of $10,000.

Sharon happily tweeted out a message to her 594,000 followers, “Attended HollyRod’s “DesignCare” charity event last nite w Ozzy. We had a brilliant nite &Ozzy bought a rescue (Yorky) puppy. Quite fabulous.” She also sent out a follow up tweet with a picture of her newest pack member which the couple has named “Charlie”.

Charlie will join Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne in about a week after it is weaned from its mother. The pedigree pup will find a loving home with the Osbournes and their twelve other pooches Maggie, Bella, Lola, Martin, Mr. Chips, Crazy Baby, Bunny, Puffy, Rocky, Storm, Two Face and Pippy.

    I’m glad he’s a rescue and I’m glad it’s for charity, but auctioning a dog off is just weird….

    I’m also glad the charity (which is 10 grand richer) doesn’t seem to test on animals. (I’m just assuming since it’s more of a support group?)
