One Dog's Incredible Life Saving Transformation

A driver in Canada spotted what looked like a pile of trash squirming around on the side of the road, so they decided to get out and take a look. They discovered that the strange, indiscernible pile of stuff was actually a dog with fur that was so overgrown and matted it could hardly move, let alone feed itself.

They took the dog to the Quebec Society for the Protection of Animals, and a radical grooming session transformed him from a ratty looking hobo creature to this cute little dog ready for adoption.

More likely it'd simply been abandoned. Dogs with hair prone to matting can start doing so in an incredibly short amount of time.

I volunteer at a city humane society. We often see an increase in abandoned pets at or shortly after the end of every month, as people leave their rented apartments/trailers/etc and instead of taking their pets with them, simply dump them outside with a 'they'll take care of themselves' or 'someone will take them in, I'm sure'.

We get a few mat messes a month, although I have to say this one's pretty awful. At least a couple of months. He sure cleaned up cute though.
