Dog Named Bob Marley Due to Matted Dreadlocks Gets Incredible Makeover After Being Rescued

One night while driving, a couple spotted what they thought was a black garbage bag blowing across the road. When they got closer, they saw that this black ball of fur was actually a scared, hungry, and dehydrated dog. What they did next is awesome!

This is the poor dog the night they found her.

It breaks my heart to know that some people can completely abandon their pets or show them a complete lack of care. I’m also hopeful that more people have the hearts like this couple that rescued this little girl and are now giving her the life she deserves.
Marley is still scared around people and loud noises but she’s getting better each day
