PORTLAND, OR – Getting a little sucked in here and a little sucked in there isn’t just for humans anymore.
An overweight Dachshund, Obie used to be so fat you could hear his belly dragging along the ground. At his heaviest he weight 77 lbs. His owners at the time, an elderly couple, couldn’t take care of him and overfed him. Obie was eventually adopted by a vet technician who helped lose weight. Through diet and exercise, he went down to 37 lbs.
But Obie had a lot of excess skin, so he had the surgery to remove it. Doctors say they took about 2 lbs off.
