Willard was on the run. He eluded animal service officers for days before they were finally able to catch and bring him to the Dane County Humane Society (DCHS) in Madison. He arrived scared, exhausted and in desperate need of a shave.
A standard poodle mix, Willard had a coat that was completely overgrown, matted and full of burrs. For over an hour, Willard patiently waited while veterinary technicians shaved his coat. It was as if he knew our staff was there to help. It was remarkable to see that under all that fur, there was one very skinny and relieved dog.
