This wiener dog had a wee bit too many wieners. Meet Obie, a 70-pound five-year-old dachshund who weighed twice the normal weight of its breed. He was fed nearly to death by his elderly owners, who had to give him up because of their deteriorating health.
Now, vet Nora Vanetta is putting the fat dog on a diet and logging his progress on this Facebook page: Biggest Loser, Doxie Edition. Nora wrote:
Our story began when a relative of this boy’s family stepped in and asked for help. Aging owners with failing health were simply loving him with food. They just couldn’t say “no” to those big brown eyes. Through many tears, the owners relinquished him. It is very frustrating and sad but we are thrilled to be able to help him, and now moving on with his new life.
