Stray Dog Can’t Stop Smiling After Rescuers Shave Off His Matted Fur

Stories about abandoned animals are always heartbreaking and the story of Holland, an adorable puppy with an unfortunate life, is one of those.

It all started on September 27th, when Holland was dropped off at an open-access shelter. Her condition was horrible. Malnourished dog was covered in matted fur and was scared for her life. But the Trio Animal Foundation came to the rescue.

They took the puppy in and started working on her recovery right away. The first step was removing the matted fur. It was not an easy task.

To keep the puppy as safe as possible, Holland was sedated for a surgical groom at the vet. The team was happy to find out, that Holland didn’t have any major health issues apart from her skin condition – she had bruises, cuts, splits all over her skin.

At first, after the makeover, she had a hard time walking, but medicine and time helped with that. After weeks of medical treatments and emotional rehabilitation, Holland found her forever home.
