What is the longest you’ve ever gone without a haircut? Three months? Six months? A year? Check this out. This dog did not have a haircut for SIX YEARS! That’s 42 human years! How did that happen? Well, the story doesn’t start good, but it sure ends well!

His home was a barn without escape.

Lazarus, a neglected Great Pyrenees dog, was living in some awful circumstances. His home was a barn without escape. In fact, an extensive amount of feces and dirt had piled up over time. So much so that it blocked the barn stall door. Literally, his rescuers had to shovel all of that out of the way in order to gain entrance through the door.

Lazarus had a very thick coat to begin with, and was not the kind of dog who could rely on the shedding process alone to stay even relatively well groomed.

“From the looks of the dog and the door it looked like it had been a while,” C., a dog groomer who requested her name be kept private, told thedodo.com.

 Lazarus had found his forever home.
