Rescue takes in severely matted dog who looks like a wig — today she’s unrecognizable

A very mistreated stray dog named Pear recently received help from Mac’s Mission, a charity canine rescue organisation in Missouri, in a touching story of transformation. The dog was discovered abandoned in the middle of the road, completely covered in thick, matted fur, which prompted the rescue to intervene and provide a transformative makeover.

When the rescue described Pear’s original state, they said she “didn’t even look like a dog,” more like “just a wad of hair,” comparing her looks to a wig. Despite the difficult circumstances, the committed staff at Mac’s Mission took Pear under their care right away.

Newsweek spoke with Rochelle Steffen, the creator of Mac’s Mission, about the incredible journey of Pear’s metamorphosis. For Pear, the rescue arranged a “spa session” that included the painstaking removal of the matted, unclean fur that had caused the distraught canine a great deal of anguish.

“We got her cleaned up, shaved down, and a bath to get rid of any grime and fleas,” Steffen said. Pear showed incredible compassion and sweetness throughout the difficult procedure. “She was the sweetest and just sat there while we got all the terrible thick mats off her, which took quite a while.”

Fortunately, Pear’s fur was free of maggots during the makeover, and the rescue crew was thankful that Pear had not been in a more serious accident given how she looked on the road. It was also found that Pear was missing an eyeball, most likely from an earlier injury.

A small amount of care and attention can make a huge difference in an animal’s life, as demonstrated by the amazing before-and-after pictures of Pear’s transformation that Mac’s Mission provided. The rescue group thanked all of the supporters and said that Pear now has a new life ahead of her.

“Pear has a new life ahead of her thanks to you all,” the rescue stated on Facebook, expressing gratitude for everyone’s combined efforts in enabling this remarkable turnaround. Pear’s transformation from an unloved, matted dog to a well-groomed, well-cared-for dog serves as a tribute to the positive effects that kindness and rescue work have on the lives of needy animals.
