    Snif… darn this allergy. Good luck to darling Joey and his human. And bless the dog groomer for such a great makeover!

  2. I would have adopted him dirty and messy! what a sweetheart.

  3. Hear hear, Sapphie!

    sneeeEEEEEF! those eyes speak volumes. so glad that he’s in a loving home. not that we would be able to adopt another fur-baby but he was pretty durned cute before the makeover too. 🙂

  5. Rachael says:

    You people have GOT to stop chopping onions in here! 🙂

    I’m with Sapphie – I’ve adopted dogs that I didn’t think were especially cute but somehow they became beautiful practically overnight.

  6. I agree that Joey was adorable even before the makeover but I bet he felt so much better all cleaned up! So glad he is now in his forever home!

  7. 6rabbits says:

    I agree Joey was adorable before the makeover! However, many otherwise _wonderful_ humans have negative preconceptions of shelter animals, making it difficult to see their potential as pets until they are clean and/or cute-ified. That’s why volunteer groomers are so important to increased adoption rates. 🙂

  8. ❤ Joey ❤

  9. Reminds me of Hank the Dog (the stray the Milwaukee Brewers adopted during spring training). Every little (and big) dog needs a forever home–to be loved, cherished, and spoiled. Very happy for Joey!

  10. Sharon Wilson says:

    I got to brush a scruffy-looking stray kitteh at Best Friends, and she ended up looking gorgeous and got adopted the next day!

  11. The slo-mo tongue blow is adorable. Happy for that little dog!
