They Thought This Dog Was Dead, But When They Looked Closer… OMG!


Every time you think you’ve heard the worst case of animal neglect, another story pops up to trump the previous one. No one knows what brings these owners to neglect their pets in such a way, but it’s a good thing that there are agencies to provide the help these animals need to find better lives.

The Shih Tzu named Dori was completely unrecognizable when she was taken into the shelter.

The police had been called about a case of a dead dog in a basement in Buffalo, New York.

What they found was a matter mess that wouldn’t move, and they really believed it was dead. They couldn’t tell which end was which or where her feet even began or ended.

It turns out to be the small dog who was so caked with matted fur that she could barely move. That’s a lot of weight pulling on her skin!

In fact, her situation was so bad that the dog had to be anesthetized in order to remove the copious amounts of fur clinging to her body.

Dori was about 11 pounds when she was brought in, and weighed about 7 pounds when all that matted fur was removed.

Her ears were also infected, as well as her eye, and needed to be treated.

Afterward, Dori soon found her own forever home.

 Her previous owner pleaded guilty to a Class A misdemeanor in court and recently received a one year conditional discharge, monthly inspections by the SPCA for one year and banned from owning pets for one year.

She also was ordered to perform 100 hours of community service and pay the SPCA restitution.
