Neglected Dog Rescued From A Barn - Looks Like A Brand New Dog After They Shave Off 35 Pounds Of Fur

Animal rescuers found a poor, neglected dog who spent six years alone in a barn. Animal rescuers gave the pup a much-needed haircut.

Lazarus, a poor, depressed dog trapped in a barn for six years, probably thought he'd never see the light of day again. The dog's owner fell terminally ill, and Lazurus was left locked in to fend for himself.

When rescuers first found him, there was a huge pile of feces blocking the door. It needed to be shoveled away. The poor dog looked like one giant poof ball. His hair had grown and his coat had gotten so matted, he was a sorry sight.

Lazarus wasn't thrilled about the grooming process, but after the hair started coming off the pup he looked relieved. His before and after photos are one of the most dramatic make-overs you'll ever see. All in all, about 35 pounds of fur was shaved off the dog.

Lazarus is now residing at the appropriately named Big Fluffy Dog Rescue. He's not a big, fluffy dog anymore, thank goodness, and in a couple of months he should be ready for adoption.
