Homeless Dog Found Matted And Freezing In The Cold Looks Unrecognizable After Medical Care

Makeover stories are extremely popular on television and in film, but the main stars of makeovers are humans.

I prefer animal makeovers. Specifically, animals that are rescued from terrible situations. Most of these animals look scraggly and you can’t even see their faces.

When Ollie was found, his fur was matted and so long you couldn’t see his adorable little eyes. He was clearly in need of dire help.

A woman and her sister saw Ollie outside her apartment, shivering in the freezing cold. They brought him in and quickly called the Michigan Humane Society to help take care of the dog.

Once Ollie was brought in, it was discovered just how sick he is. Had he not been rescued, he would have suffered a very painful death alone in the streets.

But now he has a new home, where he’s being loved while still receiving medical care for his disease. Though he might not have a long life left, he will be loved for every last moment he has.

If you love this rescue story, you will also enjoy this other rescue by the Michigan Humane Society of a mama cat and her kittens after they were tossed out of a moving car.
