He came in as a pathetic mess of overgrown mats and bumps over his entire body, face, ears. As soon as he arrived, he was escorted in to meet Sandy the groomer who must deal with neglected dogs and cats as each arrives.
The huge lumps and bumps also made normal bodily functions a difficult chore. We call him "Mushroom" as the failure to groom this Shih Tzu only created mushroom caps all over his body. But as bad as the overgrown mess was, it didn't affect his joyful, exuberant personality & the fact that his coat was being skillfully removed. His spa day was his re-birth and is elated at seeing the world in new eyes.
Mushroom is just one of many neglected dogs that suffer in so many ways. Some have had to have limbs removed when fur strangles their blood supply.
Mushroom is about 2 years old and the impish guy deserves a life filled with affection which he will repay with love, loyalty and gratitude. For more information, call 973-824-7080 or email us and refer to File 26146-M.
