Treasure is a 2-year-old female purebred miniature poodle who was severely neglected before being spotted by a passing motorist who brought her to the Natchez-Adams County Humane Society. Because of her matted, thick, and dirty hair, she couldn’t even walk anymore! Luckily, all it took was a visit to the vet and the beautiful Treasure emerged again. The next doggy was completely unrecognizable after the glow up!

#7. Alana

Alana was surrendered to the shelter severely matted and dirty, hardly recognizable as a dog. They needed to shave her completely, because all the matted fur made it impossible to give her vaccinations. Without the fur, they realized she was much younger than what they thought! The sweet little dog found her forever home. Slide next to meet Boo!

#6. Boo

Boo was brought to the CARES Community Animal Rescue & Educational Shelter in Florida after being found on the side of the road. After being cleaned up and groomed, she weighed only 2,8 pounds and looked absolutely adorable. Up next, the story of a dog that was found in Mexico!
