In 2015 Mark Imhof started quite an unusual business. He was thinking about what he could do to help homeless dogs from rescue shelters find their new family. One of the main problems for the dogs was that their street life usually left them badly disheveled, which hides their natural beauty, and might stop people from adopting them. But Mark The Dog Guy, decided to fix this situation and he nailed it!
The services of Mark The Dog Guy include a wash, a haircut, and other grooming procedures. Also, Mark posts the pictures or videos of the grooming process and tells a short story about the doggies on his social media. And those pictures melted the hearts of the 5 Fun Facts team! Today we’d like to share the love with you by presenting 18 dogs Mark has worked with.
