Severely Matted Dog Rescued From The Streets Finds A Forever Home

It’s always heartbreaking to see a dog who is living on the streets.

When Ermioni of DAR Rescue in Greece was called out to care for a stray, she knew immediately that she needed to help.

The poor dog was weighed down by such badly-matted fur, it was obvious that this pup had been struggling on his own out on the streets for a long time.

The stray dog was quite scared as well as he refused to let Ermoini approach him. In fact, the dog even lunged at her and tried to bite her out of fear.

Despite that, she didn’t let anything stop her from trying to help. She was determined to help rescue him from a further life of pain and misery.

DAR Rescue had actually been out on a different rescue call when they came across the poor dog with his horrible mats. Eventually, they were able to find him and take him into the safety of their rescue. They named him Mourgos.

The pup was taken to see a vet where he was given medical attention, as well as a much-needed haircut. Following that haircut, he looked like a brand new dog!
