A homeless dog was cut for the first time in his life, and he changed beyond recognition

People used to pass Ellen’s dog without even noticing it — they mistook the animal for a pile of garbage. By the time Ellen was found on the streets of Chicago, her fur was completely fluffed up and covered in urine and feces.
Luckily for Ellen, activists from the Trio Animal Foundation picked her up. At first they couldn’t even tell if it was a male or a female!
But when they cut off a kilo of hair Ellen became really cute. Just look at her!

Her rescuers at the Trio Animal Foundation described her as «a ball of urine-soaked hair.»
