If there is one thing that brings us that much joy, it is reading stories of animals rescued from a life of pain and suffering. One of those lucky ones is Ellie Mae, who was so neglected, that when she arrived at the shelter it was impossible to know what animal she was.
The Humane Society of Nebraska gave Ellie Mae a makeover and changed her life completely. The puppy was an unrecognizable mass of caked hair, but after much love and hard work, it ended up as good as new. Stories like this give you back your faith in humanity.

2 weeks after her arrival at the shelter, no one could believe that Ellie Mae had these problems with her hair. One tweeter claimed that Ellie Mae appeared to be “a shih tzu or a cross with shih tzu”.
