Transformation Tuesday: Barker
Talk about a transformation!
Barker, a 6-year-old Miniature Poodle, was rescued by AHS' EAMTs after he was discovered being kept in a pen in a backyard. He was found with his sister, Gwen, a 4-year-old Shiba Inu mix, receiving inadequate care.Barker had very dirty, unmanaged fur that was covered with painful mats. Needless to say, this poor pup was in desperate need of a groom. Along with the many lifesaving programs and services AHS has to offer, AHS’ Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital™ is dedicated to providing care for animals with nowhere else to turn. Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital Pet Groomer and Docent Volunteer, Lisa, took this pup under her wing and transformed him into a whole new dog. Along with the grooming, Barker had his bloodwork tested, was vaccinated, neutered, had inguinal cryptorchid surgery performed and received a dental cleaning and polishing with one extraction. Through the matted and dirty fur, revealed a charming, sweet boy with so much love to give! Barker and his sister Gwen are available for adoption at our Sunnyslope Campus. They are best friends and do need to find their fur-ever home together.
We’re transforming Maricopa County into one of the best places to be a pet. Our mission is to make happy “after” stories for thousands of “before” pets.
