This senior dog, named Maggie, was found as a stray, roaming the streets of Los Angeles. It’s unknown how she ended up on the streets, but just by looking at her, it was obvious that she had been living as a stray for quite some time. The people who found her brought her to a nearby shelter in LA.

She is blind in one eye due to cataracts and her fur was extremely matted, causing her a lot of discomfort. It’s difficult for senior shelter dogs to find furever homes, let alone ones who look like a dirty mess. Maggie was also at a high-kill shelter, so she was running out of time.

Thankfully, she was able to get a makeover that ended up saving her life! Hollywood Grooming came and brought her inside their mobile grooming van to begin her transformation.

Since she was matted so badly right down to her skin, the groomer had to completely shave her. Then the groomer washed and bathed her to get all of that filth off.

After she was clean, the groomer blow-dried her and scissor-cut the hair on her head and around her face, and she was even given a pretty little pink bow to wear!

After her makeover, her entire demeanor changed. It was obvious that her makeover not only made her look better on the outside, but it also helped her feel better on the inside. She was visibly so much happier after her grooming.

And best of all? Fortunately, days after her transformation, Maggie was adopted into her furever home!

Many dogs like Maggie are stuck in shelters in horrific shape. Sadly, people judge the dogs on their appearance, and they never get to see the real dog beneath all of the mats and grime. Maggie got a second chance at life, but not every shelter dog is that lucky. If you’re thinking of getting a new dog, adopt, don’t shop! You could make another pup like Maggie extremely happy, and even save their life!
