Rescue pups go from grunge to glam with doggy makeovers

Local News

HOUGHTON, Michigan (WJMN) – When the Copper Country Humane Society took in 15 Shih Tzus on Monday, they had their work cut out for them. CCHS says the dogs were not seized or from a court case. They were surrendered due to owner health issues.

There are 11 female dogs and 4 males. One of the females is getting some dental work done. CCHS says its veterinarian is coming in on Saturday to check all the other dogs, figure out how old they are and figure out any other care they might need.

Greetings from one of our Shih Tzu girls! She had her grooming and now we are at the vet for an impromptu visit. She has an abscess from some bad teeth! This poor sweetie is going to have a dental tomorrow so she can start feeling better. These pups are going to need quite a bit of vetting for spay/neuter, dentals and their eyes. If you are able to help out, we would appreciate it so much. Thank you!
