Elderly Dog Suffers From Severe Neglect After Owner's Death, Found With 9lb Of Fur

This story speaks about Ellie Mae, a Shih Tzu, who was found imprisoned and immobile in her fur after her human mama died years ago.  When the dog arrived to Nebraska Humane Society, the vets were completely shocked as they have never seen a case like this.

What made things weirder was that the woman’s relative said that they did not know she had a dog! The vets surprised how the dog survived all these years inside the house! So, they sedated the 11-year-old dog to cut her 7-inch claws, and to shave 9-pound fur!

Ellie revealed herself as a sweet 11-pound dog, after removing grit, feces, and cocoon of hair. They then took her for surgery to fix a hernia and some dental work.

The dog, who suffers from arthritis, is now receiving treatment for her muscle loss and infected foot. She will then be available for adoption. Watch the video below.
