World’s Ugliest Dog Transformed by Makeover into Super Cute Puppy

Sometimes miracles really do happen. For example, take the case of the poor, sick mongrel called the “world's ugliest dog” by many on social media.

This sick, middle aged canine named Frodo after the hobbit in Lord of the Rings, has recently undergone a stunning transformation with a top to bottom “doggy makeover” following his rescue from the streets of Zagreb, Croatia.

Note that Frodo was first seen on social media in the early summer of last year, covered with thousands of fleas, ticks and was even suffering from mange that was making his fur fade away in ugly patches.

The remainder of Frodo’s fur was dirty and tangled, and a serious infection caused his eyes to bulge out oddly from their sockets

It turned out the lucky dog was rescued by a kind Croation woman named Klaudija Sigunjak, and was named after the main character in the fantasy movie trilogy because what was left of his fur looked like the hobbit's.

“I was stunned. I could hardly believe it was really a dog,” Sigunjak explained in a recent interview with the media.

That said, at this point less than a year later, Frodo cannot be recognized from his days on the street following his recent adoption by an animal loving man named Marko Dusparo.

Although one of Frodo’s eyes was so badly damaged that it couldn't be saved, the vets in Croatia did manage to successfully treat his severe case of mange and his naturally thick fur eventually grew back.

“His transformation was phenomenal. We never dreamed that he would be so beautiful,” Sigunjak went on to comment about Frodo’s current state.

Remember that the well known expression “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” applies to all kinds of pets just as it does to people, and Frodo’s amazing transformation is a perfect case in point.

Frodo is one of the fortunate few stray cats and dogs that end up in a loving home. Millions of abandoned pets all across the country do not have that kind of luck, and many end up suffering for quite some time in harsh circumstances before they finally die of natural causes or are euthanized.

Some non-profit sources estimate that there are as many as 8 to 10 million stray dogs in the US, and perhaps as many as 70 million stray cats spread out all across this country (mainly because cats are much better at not being seen and caught than dogs).
