This neglected dog lost 35 pounds after getting groomed for the first time in 7 years

Lazarus, a 7-year-old Great Pyrenees, has lived in a small barn stall his whole life. Concerned neighbors reached out to a local groomer who showed up and gave this sad dog his first hair cut. 35 pounds of extra fur was cut off, revealing a much leaner dog underneath.

The groomers had to shovel away 7 years worth of dirt and feces in order to open the barn door and get to the poor dog.

Laz was apprehensive at first, but finally let them shave his mangled fur and trim his overgrown nails, which were curled 3 times around.

Lazarus' owners, who recently became terminally ill, agreed to sign him over to the Big Fluffy Dog Rescue in Tennessee, where he's learning how to be a "normal" dog. For now he lives in a foster home in Virginia, where he'll stay until he's ready for a forever home.

Shedding the 35 pounds of extra fur was only the first step in a long road ahead. Before Lazarus can be adopted, he will have to learn all the basics. 

Walking, being pet, getting treats...it's all new to Laz. 

Lazarus was found trapped in a barn, covered in 35 pounds of overgrown hair.

This is footage of his first walk on grass minutes after his big hair cut. 

Foster mom, Amanda Brooke Charsha-Lindsey, frequently posts Laz updates.
