Matted Dog Trapped In Barn For 6 Years Accumulated 35 Pounds Of Fur

A matted dog was rescued after being trapped in a barn for a very long time. Lazarus, a Great Pyrenees, had a rough first 6 years in life. Although he is a herding dog, he never got a flock. He did not run outside and get to do what he does best–herding.

Instead, he spent year after year trapped in a barn. He did not get love or attention. He was not housebroken either and was severely uncomfortable around people.

The human who used to care for Lazarus became terminally ill. Therefore, Lazarus was locked up in a barn and given only the most basic needs in order to survive.

Great Pyrenees dogs need to be groomed daily to keep their fur nice and healthy. However, Lazarus spent years rolling in dirt and his own feces that he accumulated 35 pounds of matted fur.

Turn to the next page to see how Lazarus looks like after rescue. He doesn’t carry a heavy 35 pounds of matted fur anymore.

  1. I suspect that this dog might benefit from being placed in a setting with another of his breed–or another herding breed–that is a well-socialized and trained animal. With such a mentor, he might be quick to pick up the cues from a four-legged buddy faster than with only human leadership and love.

  2. i HAVE NO SYMPTHANY FOR THE OWNER. IF HE WERE TOO ILL TO LET THE DOG RUN OUTSIDE HE SHOULD HAVE HAD AN S.P.C.A. FOUND A GOOD HOME FOR HIM. AS THIS MAN WERE ILL i WOULD NOT RECOMEND WHAT i WHOULD HAVE RECOMMENDED FOR SOMEONE ELSE. WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN AN EYE FOR AN EYE AND A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH. THERE IS NO EXCUSE, THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN 42 YEARS IN HUMAN LIFE AND MAYBE, THIS MAN DESERVES 42 YEARS OF ONLY RECEIVING FOOD, NO TOUCH, NO OUTSIDE, NO HEALTH CARE, ETC
