Dog with fur so matted he couldn’t walk is totally transformed

Dog with fur so matted he couldn’t walk is totally transformed

An abandoned dog had an incredible transformation after being found with fur so matted he could barely move.

Frankie, a terrier cross, looks like a different dog after he was properly groomed for the first time in years.

He was in such a bad condition when he was found in West Yorkshire in August that he could hardly walk or see.

His fortunes have reversed, as he has now been taken in by dog lover Tracey Williamson, who said it was ‘love at first sight’ when he was placed for adoption.

She is now teaching him now to play for the first time, as he didn’t even recognise what toys were.

Tracey said: ‘My heart melted when I saw his photo. He looked like our late dog and we completely fell in love with him.

‘We submitted an application and kept our fingers crossed but weren’t holding out much hope as we knew how much interest there had been in rescue dogs during lockdown.’

However, Tracey and her family were asked to go and meet Frankie and had such an amazing time together that they were matched together a short time later.

Tracey said: ‘We were so excited when we were chosen to adopt him.

‘He’s settled in really well. He can be a little nervous of new things but he’s really growing in confidence.

‘When we first got him he was quite anxious on the lead and going out and about but now he absolutely loves his walks.’

Frankie was found abandoned, along with another dog called Benny, in Sowerby Bridge near Halifax.

The pair were taken to the RSPCA’s Leeds and Wakefield branch for urgent care prior to their adoption.

Tracey said: ‘It breaks our hearts to think how he was treated before and we hope, in time, that he’ll forget about his past.

‘Now he gets very spoiled and loves a bit of pampering.’

She added: ‘He’s such a lovely dog, he’s so affectionate and we couldn’t imagine our lives without him.’

Tracey said: ‘I don’t think anyone has ever played with him before as he doesn’t really understand what toys are.

‘But we’re going to try to introduce him to games and teach him how to have fun.

‘He’s brought us so much joy and love, especially during lockdown, so we’re determined to do the same for him.’
