Dennis the Dachshund had a bit of a weight problem.
This cutie pooch literally weighed as much as three full grown Dachshunds!!
At his heaviest, Dennis weighed 56-pounds!
What’s amazing, is how long this dog was able to live at that weight.
What’s even more amazing, is how that pooch lost 44-pounds and reclaimed his doggy life!!
Brooke Burton adopted Dennis from a relative who had been feeding the pup pizza and White Castle burgers!!! That’s sickening. Brooke said:
“In the beginning, you could tell he was very depressed, that he really didn’t feel good at all. He didn’t have much of a personality. After he lost weight, this bossy little demanding man popped out. He’s into everything, he wants to play with everybody.”
So after being put on a diet of dry dog food and daily exercise, and sticking to it for months and months… Dennis has lost 75% of his bodyweight!
He’s now a happy, healthy, 12-pound pup!!
…after three operations to remove two full dogs worth of excess flesh!
The moral of this story?? Don’t give dogs White Castle!!!
