He Was Matted So Badly, He Lost Circulation. After Being Shaved, He Looks Like A Whole New Dog!FamilyPet
This toy poodle, named Bobb, belonged to homeless owners who hadn’t been able to take proper care of him for a long time. He had never been groomed in ten years, so you could imagine how matted his fur was.
Synergy Animal Rescue took him in and tried to groom him. His fur was so tightly matted that some of it cut off his circulation on one of his legs and self-amputated it. After shaving him, his other injured front paw was revealed. That paw, too, had lost circulation and was just dangling, so vets had to amputate it.
They also pulled many of his teeth out, as they were rotting and in bad shape. After his grooming session, he looks like a whole new dog!
A woman named Megan Lundberg thankfully adopted Bobb and is taking great care of him. They looked into getting him prosthetics but for now, it would cause him too much pain. In the meantime, he has acclimated to hopping around on two legs, and he does it with ease!
To keep him strong, Bobb will receive physical therapy.
