“his coat was in the technique of matting to his skin,” says amanda charsha-lindsey of the big fluffy dog rescue, who’s now fostering the great pyrenees in virginia. “when it receives to that factor, brushing and trimming aren’t options any more and the shears have to come out. It become pretty actually mats on top of mat on top of mats.”

“i know it turned into a brand new feeling he had by no means felt and he seemed unsure,” charsha-lindsey tells people. “after a few treats and a few encouragement, he took his first few steps without his coat.”

having visible his excellent transformation, charsha-lindsey hopes it’s going to spark more communique about animal rescue, and the brilliant matters it could accomplish.

In his time there, he’s enjoyed sitting outside within the mornings, sniffing the grass, and getting heat inside the sun.

“slowly, he is gaining knowledge of to canine,” charsha-lindsey says, adding that he’ll stay there till he’s equipped for a forever domestic. “showing him new things brings us joy as nicely, simply to peer the smile on his face every day. He has began looking for affection from us and received’t go to bed without a hug and a smooch.”
