This is the story of a little dog who really loved deli meat that he had so much of it. She is a beagle, and she ballooned to three times the normal size of her breed because of eating too much.
It is inspiring, though, that the dog was able to lose 25 lbs. in just four short months. This is the story of Snuffy.
Snuffy is eight years old, and when she ballooned, she found it difficult to walk, thanks to many days of having sliced ham and turkey.
Snuffy used to have an old couple as his owners, and they just wanted to give the dog treats. They also didn’t motivate Snuffy to get some physical activity. That’s why she ballooned to 65 lbs. The average beagle has a weight of only 22 to 24 lbs.
Snuffy’s owners moved in November 2017, and they left the dog to a person they knew, Webster. Webster became Snuffy’s new owner and brought her to the vet. The vet said that the dog should not snack too much. Webster decided that it was time to get Snuffy back in shape.
Webster started by not giving the dog any deli meat. He also gave Snuffy two small meals only per day. He also created an exercise plan that included Snuffy going on three-mile walks and climbing up the stairs to get to their home, which was on the third floor. This was done daily.
In four months, Snuffy lost 24.5 lbs. already. Her health had also improved, and her body looked better! She now runs like there’s no tomorrow, and she has no trouble going up the stairs.
Webster said that Snuffy’s journey inspired her as well. Snuffy may be the same dog, but she looked entirely different. The dog now enjoys doing physical activities. Many people have also been touched and inspired by Snuffy’s journey towards better health.
