It's amazing what a little love and nurturing can do for a dog.
After learning about an abandoned dog with severely matted hair in the neighborhood, a local rescue team from Hope for Paws went out to find her. In the video you can see just how dirty, matted and overgrown the poor pooch's hair is as she shakes and growls at her rescuers. Once they finally have the dog on a leash, they slowly begin to pet her. As she calms down, they decide to name her Dolly.

Back at the shelter, Dolly prepared for a haircut. If you own a dog, you know that most of them hate scissors, clippers or anything that comes close to their skin. After all that growling and yapping earlier, we expected Dolly to put up a fight when the electric clippers came out, but amazingly enough she sits patiently still during the entire three hours it took to cut her clumpy, matted hair. And she's just as calm during bath time, too! All that love and care is already starting to have an effect!
The ending is simply amazing, and words cannot do it justice. You'll feel so many emotions while you watch Dolly's transformation into a playful, well-behaved pup, scampering around her new home with another doggy friend. We just want to reach out and give her a big fat hug! Watch the video for yourself and consider adopting a shelter pet, yourself!
