A severely neglected dog has been given a new chance at life. Ellie Mae was trapped in smelly, matted fur. She was found by the Nebraska Humane Society in a home where the owner had died.
Vets removed 9 pounds of matted fur from the 11-year-old dog giving her a new lease on life.
“Really just getting through the matting. I thought the emotional part would be a challenge, I mean the emotions kind of came afterwards. You just kind of shut those emotions off and say I need to help this dog. The three of us just shaving her down and finally found a dog under there,” said groomer Jenna Baseler.
Now, Ellie Mae is living a wonderful life with her new owner, 91-year-old Bette Mae of Omaha. Check out their sweet story in the video above.
