A Shih-Tzu has undergone a total transformation after a grooming session by those who rescued him. These photos illustrate his career.
The volunteers of an association which defends the animal cause made a unique meeting. It is an 11-year-old Shih-Tzu dog who was crumbling under a mass of very matted hair. The animal could be taken to the premises of the association. He had the right to a grooming session which did him the greatest good.
