Shiloh, an intact 2-3 year old Standard Poodle, was surrendered by an overwhelmed breeder along with many other dogs including Standard Poodles, Mini Poodles, Chinese Cresteds, Collies and Collie mixes. Shiloh was in horrendous shape, it took the groomer (A BIG THANK YOU to Shonda McKoy, Groomer at Wateree Animal Hospital of Camden, for staying WAY after hours to help this girl - most groomers would have given up!) 3 ½ hours to shave her down without hurting her. Her coat came off as one solid mat – it looked like we had sheared a sheep or skinned a dog. Shonda had to start at the nose which was the only place the clippers could start a line as the mats were thick and down to the skin in many places. The case was so severe that Shonda would not let anyone else, including the Director of Dog4U, assist her with grooming poor Shiloh as Shonda feared that anyone with less experience would injure her severely by cutting through skin. The difference in this dog, shown in the photos, is just astounding. We have an entire album of the grooming process where you can see the delight on her face as she is freed from her prison of mats. Shiloh has an upbeat personality that many of the neglected breeder dogs we rescued with her don’t, a testament to her character. While a bit shy Shiloh wags her tails, tolerates being handled well and is gaining confidence. Within a few weeks she will hopefully be ready for adoption. She still has a ways to go but she is making emotional progress every day. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to help offset her medical expenses as we get her ready to travel north to our rescue partners in Massachusetts. If you are not able to donate during these difficult economic times please share her story, it makes a real difference.
