Rags to riches: Wollie the farmyard Maltese

Rags to riches: Wollie the farmyard Maltese

Wollie was uplifted from a farm and, although he was not abused or uncared for, a farmyard is simply not the place for a fluffy dog. Around the farm is lots of bush and, without keeping him clipped short all the time (which his owners simply cannot afford), his coat was constantly matted and dirty.

He was also being bullied terribly by the other farm dogs, most of which were much bigger than he is. 😮

His owner, who is a farm labourer, very tearfully asked us – on old year’s day – to take him and find him a new home as she knows that this is what’s best for him.

We took him to the vet for a check-up and then it was off to our friends at Uitsig ARC. Once he’d settled in, he received a DIY make-over! The sweet little pooch sat perfectly still while two people snipped off all the horrible matted bits of coat, clipped his nails, and cleaned out his ear. He also got a nice warm bath (he wasn’t so impressed with that!) and then cuddle time in the sun!

And on Saturday, he went to his forever home.

Go well, sweet little guy! Be happy.
