Rescued Obese Dachshund Must Lose 40 Pounds


Described as adorable and chubby, Obie the dachshund, weighs 77 pounds, because his previous owners overfed him.  The portly 5 year-old canine was rescued by a veterinary technician in Portland, Oregon, and is now on track to shed his excess fat.


Right now Obie’s too big to exercise, but when he trims down, he’ll be able to use a doggie treadmill.

The fat loss formula is the same in animals as humans: healthy diet and exercise.

Read the entire story, see Obie’s photos, and video at the Huffington Post. Obie has a Facebook page, and a special fund for donations.
