12 SHITZUS --- UNTIL NOW, A LIFETIME OF NEGLECT ---  Surrendered to Harbor Shelter by a family member after the death of the dog's owner.  Some so severely matted they were unable to walk.  One w/ a thick mat  covering an eye.  Mats bound around their teeth. Mats so thick on their feet when removed they look like UGG boots.  Toenails impossibly long.  So flea infested that gums were pale and now days later only beginning to turn pink.   They were greasy, smelly, and filthy dirty… and so, so sad & broken.  One dog was euthanized… just too sick.  AND THE OTHERS…  see below! 

Well, an amazing and kind volunteer named Karen who grooms the Harbor dogs begged for their lives to be spared.  Karen has been working countless hours, along w/ volunteer Anthony's assistance, to get these fur babies cleaned up and feeling good again w/ tails wagging.  THE TRANSFORMATIONS ARE AMAZING!!  
THESE POOR DOGS ARE FINALLY GETTING A TASTE OF WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE LOVED AND CARED FOR!!  They have suffered enough and deserve only the best for the rest of a lifetime. Koko Fay and Rex have gone to Best Friends!   Gerry, Bibo, and Pumpkin – RESCUED!  

Can you help Nahla, Best Friend, Mellow, Polo, Nane, Cruton?  
Please consider rescuing one of the six remaining at Harbor Shelter!!
