Bow to wow: America's top 10 shelter dog makeovers

(BPT) - First impressions are important, but for shelter dogs it can make the difference between life and death. While rescue organizations work tirelessly, less than half of the 3 million dogs entering shelters each year are getting the grooming they need to let their lovable, adoptable selves shine through. That’s why Wahl has teamed up with GreaterGood.org to donate funds and grooming supplies to shelters nationwide. The goal: Transform more than 20,000 dogs this year to get them ready for adoption. Hundreds of these amazing makeovers can be seen in the Dirty Dogs Before & After Gallery, but the following represent the 10 most amazing transformations.

My Experience with Dog Flu: A Dog's Point of View
Updated: August 30, 2017 - 1:33 am

(BPT) - Recently, I got really sick. I had just spent a fun-filled week with all my friends at doggie daycare while my family was on vacation. Shortly after they brought me home, I started coughing a lot. It was really hard to breathe and I started vomiting. I didn’t feel like eating anything and I was tired all of the time. I was miserable. One of my family members missed a couple days of work to try to nurse me back to health. One time we spent the whole night in the bathroom hoping the steam from the hot shower would help my nasty cough. I know it was hard for her as she has a busy job, but she was as scared as I was. When it was clear I wasn’t getting any better, my family decided to take me to my veterinarian, who ran some tests and found that I had contracted H3N2, a new strain of canine influenza (CIV), also known as dog flu.
