Hope For Paws recently received a call about a severely matted poodle living on the streets of Los Angeles. The dog, now known as Dolly, was absolutely petrified of human contact, huddling in fear behind an electric box under the hot sun. Every time Eldad would get close, she’d bark and growl. Her saviors were shocked to see her trapped under layers of thick, matted fur; at first, they couldn’t even tell if she was a boy or girl. “No one will ever hurt you again,” they assure her.
The second they usher Dolly into their car, however, she’s on her way to a brand new life. After receiving her first grooming in what could be forever, the color of her coat goes from dirty brown to a stunning blonde, and long gone are the inches of matted fur.
In the video below, you can see Dolly happy and healthy in her loving forever home. She smiles, she plays, and she accepts love wholeheartedly. What a beautiful transformation made possible by Hope For Paws and The Forgotten Dog Foundation.
