    America's top dogs: 10 best shelter dog makeovers

    (BPT) - Imagine going to a job interview filthy and stinky. Or on a first date covered in mud. Unfortunately, that’s the reality for millions of shelter dogs looking to make a good first impression. While rescue organizations work tirelessly, the sad truth is that less than half of these dogs are getting the grooming they need so their lovable, adoptable selves can shine through. To better their chances at finding a fur-ever family, pet industry leaders Wahl and GreaterGood.org have teamed up to donate funds and grooming supplies to shelters nationwide. The goal: Transform more than 20,000 dogs this year to get them ready for adoption. Hundreds of these amazing makeovers can be seen in the Dirty Dogs Before & After Gallery (DirtyDogsGallery.com), but the following represent the 10 most amazing transformations.
