A lonely and neglected chow chow is getting a new lease on life after rescuers removed five pounds of heavy, matted hair from his skinny frame.
The dog, whom rescuers are calling Harry, was brought to the KC Pet Project, a rescue in Kansas City, Missouri, in rough shape last week. "We found a shocking 5 lbs. of heavy, hardened and matted hair more than 6 inches thick covering his emaciated body. Even more disturbing, most of his nose is missing, consistent with a sharp cut from an unknown object," the rescue posted on their Facebook page.
