What a difference a little trim and bath makes.  Glen was on the euthanasia list for 2 PM today, because he was a dirty matted mess and the public just doesn't see the potential behind the mess.  Our volunteer group sent out an SOS and three of us showed up this morning to bathe and groom him.  We finished cleaning him about noon.  He was moved from Holding into Adoptions right after lunch.  He was adopted at 3 PM.  His new name is Murphey!

Another little life saved!

 ADOPTED! 9/4/12

Glen was on today's EU list until the AAS Pretty Pooch team got their hands on him. Barbara, Gaye, and Franceen spent 2 hours cutting off mats and now he looks just like Benji! Moved from EU list to adoptions. Great job girls!

They said he was so good during the whole process and appears to be housebroken and good with other dogs. Very sweet pup.

***Please Note he is in Dog Condo 4

Glenn was very sweet and patient with us.  He is a nice doggie.
