Lazarus had been living in a barn, a barn he became trapped inside after there was such a build up of dirt and feces that the door could no longer be opened. Lazarus was living in filth, his coat became overgrown and he needed help fast.
The filth was removed using shovels and groomers were asked by a neighbor of the terminally ill dog owner to help with Lazarus. The poor dog was rescued from the barn and then freed from his filth, overgrown coat. The hair removed weighed slightly over 35 pounds so Lazarus will definitely be feeling lighter now!
