Hugo the St Bernard gets an emergency make-over

Posted on Posted in Our Dogs

Saturday mornings at the kennels are never without their dull moments .. and this week was no exception .. Hugo arrived into our care this week from the Pound and it was our first time to get a proper look at him .. and boy is he a big fella !!! And sadly was in desperate need of a grooming .. so began phone calls by our volunteers and mega thanks to the crew at House Of Dogs who immediately answered our call and offered to fit Hugo in for an emergency grooming session ..

This was no small task .. he had weeks, maybe months, of a neglected coat – compounded with having spent the past few weeks in the Pound. We desperately needed to see what lay beneath the masses!!!

Sadly we only have the before photos for now ..  lots of hours were spent clipping, bathing, drying Hugo and yet more hours would be needed to give the perfect groom .. but the important work was done .. especially the clipping of severely overgrown nails .. and highlighted what looks to be the beginning of an infected toe which will now be treated ..

Mega mega thanks again to the crew at House Of Dogs, Hugo went back to kennels a lot lighter, fresher and comfortable .. and this was all done free of charge – a tremendous gesture from a local business which really means a lot to us ..

We will get photos of Hugo later in the week to show the new and improved look he is now sporting! Donations towards Hugo’s veterinary care will be very much appreciated xxx
