Dog Buried Under 15 Pounds Of Fur Is So Adorable Now

When a ball of matted fur arrived at the Clinton Animal Hospital, Betty Burns and her fellow volunteers from Heart of LCAC, were shocked.

Animal control had alerted her that they’d found a matted dog — or, at least, what they thought was a dog — wandering around a yard in Clinton, South Carolina. But nothing could’ve prepared Burns for seeing the animal up close.

“We wouldn’t have been able to determine which end was his head if we hadn’t heard him pant,” Burns told The Dodo. “You couldn’t see his eyes, nose, or mouth because you couldn’t see them. I’m still baffled as to how this dog managed to go about so well.”

Burns and a team of groomers and medical professionals immediately sedated the dog and started freeing him from his fur prison.

Over the course of four hours, nearly 15 pounds of hair filled up two garbage bags.

The groomers estimated that the dog was most likely kept in a crate for at least a year for his fur to get to this state.

With so much hair wrapped around the little animal, it was impossible to tell what kind of dog he was. But once their work was complete, the team discovered that the adorable pup, whom they dubbed Pat the Mat, was a 9-year-old cocker spaniel mix with a long body and short legs.

Pat was definitely thrilled to be a dog again after his life-changing haircut. He instantly began running about, playing with toys, and was clearly glad to be a dog again. Despite everything Pat has been through, the loving dog seems intent on leaving the past in the past.

“He’s such a sweetheart,” Burns said. “He gets around great. He’s a favorite at the clinic, that’s for sure.”

Too Broke Girls Dog Rescue came in to help the senior dog, and he is now living comfortably with his new foster family.

Burns described him as “such a cheerful little kid.”     Source: Too broken girls dog rescue
