Who doesn't love a good make-over story? I definitely do! In this case, it came at the hands of neglect but thanks to a good person, this dog got a second chance at a good life. One afternoon a man in Bury, England was out on a walk and noticed something startling. He wasn't sure what it was so he went to investigate this strange thing that was wandering along the outskirts of a park.
To his surprise, it was an animal - but he had no idea what kind of animal it was - covered head to toe in dirty matted fur.... poor thing. This pooch had definitely been through years of neglect and needed a lot of TLC. The man decided he couldn't just leave it there, he needed to do something about it. So he took the pup to a local vet to be examined. The doctors weren't exactly sure what kind of animal it was but as soon as they shaved its hair it became clear... it was a dog!
And to their surprise, it was a small Shih Tzu who had been abandoned by her owners and left on the streets of Bury. She had no identification tag, no collar, and no microchip. After all her fur was removed, doctors realized they were dealing with a bit more than they first realized; she had a number of sores and skin lesions on her body.
The vet named her Rosie, and just check out this makeover. Doctors treated all of her wounds and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals started an investigation as to why Rosie was found in such horrible conditions. I hope that they are able to find Rosie a new home with caring owners who love her and want nothing but the best for her! Thankfully there are people in this world who go out of their way to help animals! Just look at Rosie now...
From that to this, look at the 'now'!! What a sweet precious dog Rosie is! If you or someone you know is looking for a new pet, please check out your local animal shelter for a new addition. There are plenty of dogs and cats waiting for forever families just like Rosie!
