Before And After: 14 Rescue Dogs And Their Incredible Makeovers

ADVERTISING

In the United States, a dog grooming business had the great idea to join forces with animal shelters and offer makeovers to their new arrivals to give them the best chance of being rehomed. And it’s working.

 

Here are some spectacular transformations along with some comments from the volunteers who helped out.

Nanni was saved from an abandoned house where there were 40 other dogs. When she arrived she was covered in excrements and it took four hours to groom her properly. Throughout the process she remained utterly adorable.”  

 

Chevy Chevy

Chevy was abandoned by his owner when they could no longer take care of him. The poor dog was very neglected; his coat was matted and his claws were ingrowing. He was completely shaved and had a nice hot bath. After just a few days, a woman fell in love with him and adopted him.

Juliet was one of 18 Shih Tzu’s that were saved from an illegal dog breeder. All of the dogs were in a really bad state. But Juliet was in the worst state as she was covered in scabs and her fur was knotted. It took over two hours to shave and clean her. Juliet was one of the lucky ones and found a family quickly.

Bob is very popular among the volunteers. He was hugely neglected and traumatised which meant that we had to spend a lot of time with him. He has been up for adoption for almost a year.

 

Teddy Teddy

Teddy spent his life in a cage. He was used as a guard dog by an illegal trader. We took him from his owner who wanted to get rid of him. We groomed and vaccinated him. Today Teddy is happy and with his new family. He loves other dogs, cats and children.

Bobo Bobo

Bobo was abandoned by his previous owners. His fur was incredibly matted and he was covered in dry excrements which made it hard to wash him. He let us groom him and give him a good shampooing. After that his true personality was able to shine!

 

Sanford Sanford

Stanford and his sister were saved by an animal shelter in Houston. Nobody wanted them because they were so filthy. Once they were clean and back in tip top condition they received many adoption offers!

 

Butch Butch

Butch was part of a group of 15 Shih Tzus found in horrendous conditions. We had to shave and wash all of them. They have all found new families!

Red lived in terrible conditions. He was found in an abandoned house where the ground was covered in excrements and rubbish. His skin was full of infections and cuts. It took over four hours to remove the layer of dirt on his skin. Throughout his grooming he was an angel.

 

Brady Brady

Brady survived life with an illegal breeder who had never cared for or groomed his dogs. He was in a bad state. Eventually he lost an eye as a result of his infections. Thankfully he has found a new home.

 

Jordan Jordan

Jordan was in an awful state when he arrived at the shelter. His coat was so matted that he had to be anaesthetised so it could be untangled. He was unable to defecate because his fur was pressing on his back. His tummy was burned because of the urine soaked in his fur. But after a long grooming, during which Jordan was very patient, he became a handsome young man again!”.
