We've all woken up with varying degrees of bed head, but when you're a dog, messy hair can mean something much worse than just a bad hair day.
Matted hair is a painful condition most commonly seen in dogs and cats with long coats. The condition is caused by tangled knots, or "mats," which cause discomfort and even lead to health risks.
Earlier this month The Dodo told the story of a Amaze-Bobb, a dog with an extreme case of matted hair. Homeless for the first ten years of his life, Amaze-Bobb had such badly matted hair that his rescuers needed to amputate two of his legs.
Here's Amaze-Bobb when he first arrived at Synergy, a rescue, rehab and sanctuary for special needs animals in San Diego.
