He Stumbled Upon A Filthy Mop Of Fur. What He Did Next Proves The Kindness Of Strangers.

Moving to a new city is a huge change, one that requires time to adjust. Reddit user trickygonzalez was enjoying his new environment when he met his new best friend in the form of a canine. The dog who trickygonzalez named Mr. Lady looked like it had fallen on hard times. After being thoroughly bathed and having his fur clipped, Mr. Lady started to look like more like himself than a thick indistinguishable fur ball.

What began as a good deed, trying to clean and find Mr. Lady his owners, has turned in to a growing friendship. Check out the amazing transformation in the pictures below and the compelling story.

First night

Found a dog on the street. Never considered owning a dog. Fell In love. Now I own a dog. The story of a man and his trashmonster.

Settling in

Moved to LA on a Monday, on Thursday I was walking home from bowling in Koreatown... Me and two friends stumbled upon a huge mop of fur in the sidewalk barely moving. It was having trouble walking, so we waited about 15 minutes for someone to claim her. We flagged a cop down who was driving by to get a professional's opinion, as we aren't really experienced in finding dogs on the street. Cop legit said to either leave it or take it home.

My friend picked him up and carried him to my place.

Splish Splash

I called animal services to see if they had any record of the dog missing, to no avail. The dog's hair was matted everywhere and I couldn't tell whether it was a boy or girl, but it seemed like a girl so I called it Lady. It was super docile and calm, it had a collar matted way beneath the fur that I later cut out, there were no tags.

Hair cut!

I've never owned a dog, nor did I anticipate owning one in the forseeable future... but i do love dogs like a butt ton.

This was the first dog-owner thing I had to do, give it a bath. The dingleberry situation was unreal, there was lots of gross ass sh*t going on back there, but he was so cute i knew if he could just poop without having it get caked into his butt he would be so stoked.

It was at least a 2 hour process.

It's a boy!

I had to get rid of the underbelly hair because he was compiling a serious weight of feces and pee in his matted fur. This was a struggle for the both of us, no joke. He wasn't happy being wet and prodded with a shearer, but it had to be done... for the poops!

Mr. Lady First Trip To the Doctors

Found out after cleaning it , that it's a boy! Other than come up with an original boy name that would be easy to explain, i decided to call him: Mr. Lady

I held on to him for about two weeks while making flyers and craigslist posts attempting to find the owner. I took him to a shelter to check for a micro-chip, which it had! Unfortunately the contact information on file was out dated and I was unable to find Adrian Miller of Los Angeles, CA... Turns out the dog is 6 years old.

Just a cute photo of Mr Lady

I decided to hold on to him for the time being while I figure out my options, which meant i had to get him groomed and vaccinated to be safe.

He seemed a little unsure about car rides, but i think he was ok.
