Dog Trapped in Barn Grows a Massive 35 Pounds of Fur





When the rescuers arrived at the barn, they had to shovel piles of dirt and feces scattered around.

Lazarus’ owner was terminally ill and he was forced to live out in the barn for a very long time, getting cooped up in dirt and feces. Eventually, the owner had to call for help to rescue the poor dog.

They also had to shave 35 pounds of fur off poor Lazarus.

“From the looks of the dog and the door it looked like it had been a while,” says one of the groomers. Lazarus, who is a Great Pyrenees, is around 6 to 7 years old and they estimated that he lived in that barn majority of his life.

Seeing how the massive amount of fur obscured Lazarus’ entire body, the groomers and rescuers went to work immediately.


As expected, Lazarus was acting uncertain during the beginning of the grooming session. After all, he has never experienced grooming before. Eventually, he got comfortable especially when the burden of the heavy fur was taken off his body.


Lazarus was taken to Big Fluffy Dog Rescue, a non-profit center.


He was transferred to a foster home in Virginia and will stay there until the rescuers decide that the dog is ready to be adopted and introduced into a new home.
