Hairless Great Pyrenees Turns Into The Fluffiest, Happiest Dog | The Dodo Comeback Kids


Mooney is a Great Pyrenees. You can barely tell it by
looking at him right now. – Mooney was picked up as a stray. I don’t know if somebody dumped him. The pictures that I saw of him
just absolutely broke my heart. I said, “We’ve got to help this dog.” The first time I met
Mooney I was amazed at how sweet he was even in
the condition that he was in. I mean, he had to be in
pain and uncomfortable. Mooney was definitely hopeful and
determined despite his health issues. And then I pulled him as soon as I
was able to pull him from the shelter. He wants to come and put his paws
up on your shoulder, and just cuddle with you. First thing we did after I picked him up
from the shelter was I took him to the vet. He weighed about 60 pounds. Probably about a third of the
weight that he should have been. And they found out that
he had a bacterial infection, a fungal infection, and
mange all on his skin. Texas Great Pyrenees Rescue pulls dogs out of the shelters and
gives them the treatment that they need so we can get them adopted out. I’m bringing Mooney to my house to take
care of his most urgent medical issues. He will be in quarantine for
two weeks to four months. And then once he is
no longer contagious, then he will go to a
regular foster home. – Good boy.
Oh, good boy. Here we go. It’s warm. It’s okay. – Mooney will be getting medicated
baths three times a week. He is also getting antibiotic
pills and antifungal pills. – [Laughing] What are you doing? What are you doing? – Mooney has definitely made
progress since he’s been here. He’s definitely starting
to gain some weight, and his skin is the pink
color that it should be. My biggest hope for Mooney
is that he will fully recover, and is adopted by a family that
is going to be his forever family. Mooney is no longer contagious. So he can finally leave quarantine
and go to a regular foster home. We found the perfect
foster dad for Mooney who can help him grow even
stronger until he’s ready to get adopted. Mooney has come so far already. And I can’t wait for him
to take this next step. – I have two dogs. I think they help Mooney by teaching him how to be
comfortable in a human’s home. The pack at my house gave Mooney
something that perhaps I can’t. They let him know that he is okay. Mooney is soon going
to be ready to be a wonderful addition
to any human’s home. Today, Mooney is going to his adopted family’s home. I think he has transformed. He now is active, social. – Oh, thanks for coming. Hey! Hey. Hey. Welcome home. – We were reading online that Mooney had
lost all of his hair. But we looked at him and
he had this happy face. And then we just kind of knew. – Welcome home, baby boy. – He went up to everybody in the family, and was just happy to
see them, loving on us. – Welcome home. – We just kinda knew. I think our son asked me, you know,
“Do you like him, dad?” And I said, “Yeah.” And then he ran over to Jenny. He goes,
“Do you like him, mom?” And Jenny goes,
“Yeah, I like him.” And then you said to him — You said what? – I said,
“Well, how do you feel about him, Tristan?” He said,
“I love him!” [Laughing] So we knew he was —
– Yeah. So we knew. – Mooney is doing well. He gets two walks a day in the
morning and in the evening time. And then this is what he
does the rest of the day. [Laughing] He lies around. – I have a lot of respect for the people
at the Texas Great Pyrenees Rescue. It’s hard for us to comprehend what really went into all
of making him what he is now. It was definitely worth it.

  1. Beautiful family! That's one lucky dog!!! And to all the people that fostered, sheltered & cared for him…God bless you all ! You are all special people to go above and beyond this way!

  2. My boss has two Great Pyrenees, they are a couple of the sweetest dogs I have ever met. But when needed, One of his smaller dogs was being attacked and his Pyrenees saved him scaring the attacker away! Absolutely amazing dogs. Not to mention beautiful.

  3. Is good to know that some people are nice with animals because now a days people don't care.
    I I had a house with a backyard , I too would have dogs and cats.

  4. I met a Great Pyraneese once from a guy passing me. I wanted to talk to the owner. I'd never seen a real one but knew by pictures I've seen. The owner said he was very surprised by his girl's reaction to me. No I didn't ask to pet and no the dog didn't come up for a pet, but the owner said I was the only person ever to be within arm's length of him, the usual distance on stands talking to someone, without the dog going nuts. His dog was very protective and here I was talking to him learning all about his dog and she just watched. She was relaxed and sitting. I felt honored. Out of all the dogs I've met being here for 15 years only 1 passerby owner walked dogs and one neighbor dog want to kill me.

    I have a new love. A Boxer I just met last year. I keep hoping she's out on my walk to the market so I can cuddle her again.

  5. Just one of the best things in the world, seeing a previous ill, neglected, or dumped off dog looking absolutely, fabulously happy at their new Forever home!! Yea!!

  6. God bless all those who helped Mooney and his forever family!
    The 'dislikers'…I always wonder why and what is there to dislike. The heart warming part is that likers and supporters outnumber them…

  7. My gosh what a happy story! Go Mooney..he could only have gotten closer to them would be to crawl up in them. Lol..still smilin over this one..

  8. OMG the state he was in when he was found is so heartbreaking! It's amazing how sweet and trusting he was with the people who rescued him despite suffering from what I'm pretty sure was neglect before he ended up as a stray.

  9. That paws on the shoulder is such a great pyrenees thing to do. These dogs basically hug you.
    I love these dogs. They're not just my favorite kind of dogs, I feel like they're my reflection in a dog form.

  10. прекрасно у вас, у нас только убивают и гадят = путинская рфия кусок дерьма и геноцида

  11. My BIGGEST Blessings to Mooney's saviors and to him! NO pupper should ever have to suffer or hurt. Dogs are the greatest friends, the best and most loyal and loving companions. They just love so much easier than humans, they don't care if you complain, cry, or are in a lousy mood, they just want to Love you and make you enjoy your life. Love to Everybody!

  12. Got teary eyes with mooney's story and when he got adopted. So much respect for people who took care of money. God bless!

  13. Same thing here in Bali, Indonesia..lots of breed dogs were dumped if they've skin disease or just too sick.. thanked you for rescuing Mooney.. ???

  14. So happy for Mooney and his family. Pyrees are the best most loving dogs. I have 1 full blood I recently rescued. She is awesome. I also had 2 half pyree, half Australian Shepard's who were with me for 10 years for my boy and 14 years for my girl who I miss very much.

  15. Is he really? He looks /extremely/ small. I have GSD/ great Pyrenees cross – he's 110lbs and is just a bit over 5 feet long.

    edit: Yeah, that is NOT a Great Pyrenees. Just go on google images and you will see why.
