Thankfully, he was rescued by his local shelter and with a good grooming this once-unrecognizable dog was transformed into a lovable pooch and quickly adopted. Mouse's dramatic alteration not only got him a second chance on life, but the title of America's top shelter dog makeover in Wahl's 2016 Dirty Dogs Contest."

Strays, often ignored and shunned by society, spend their lonely lives just trying to survive. Life on the streets affects their mental, emotional, and physical health. Their appearance on the outside is proof of the tough life they’ve had to lead.
Unfortunately, less than half of dogs entering shelters are getting the grooming they so desperately need. Without proper grooming, many of these dogs are perceived to be ‘damaged goods,’ and not the fun loving pets they really are.
However, thanks to Wahl’s “Dirty Dogs” initiative in partnership with GreaterGood.org, shelter dogs in need of grooming are being transformed so their adoptable selves can shine through. In fact, their goal is to help makeover the lives of 20,000 dogs by the end of the year so they can finally find their forever homes.
These pictures are proof that with a groom and a whole lot of love and patience, strays can find their place in the world again.
