Fearful and risking euthanasia in a shelter, this dog with a difficult life even refused the help of his rescuers

Saved from a refuge where he risked euthanasia, an extremely suspicious dog of imposing stature would not allow himself to be examined by the veterinarian, nor even to be groomed. An association and a brand of dog shampoo came to the aid of the volunteer who took care of him.
