HOUGHTON, M.I. (WJMN) – When the Copper Country Humane Society in Michigan took in 15 Shih Tzus on Monday, they had their work cut out for them. CCHS said the dogs were not seized or from a court case. They were surrendered due to owner health issues.
There are 11 female dogs and four males. One of the females is getting some dental work done. CCHS said that its veterinarian is coming in on Saturday to check all the other dogs, figure out how old they are and any other care they might need.
One of the first steps to finding these dogs a new home is getting them looking good. Some had matted hair which can be painful. That’s where Puptown Groomers, which is based in Houghton, came to the rescue. When they heard about the dogs, groomers at Puptown spent 11 hours giving them all a fresh cut and spa treatment.
If that isn’t enough to warm your heart, gift baskets were created and donated to go home with each of the pups when they find a forever home.
Check out some of these before and after pictures from their trip to the groomer.
