Meet The World’s Fattest Wiener Dog

Obie is a 70-pound five-year-old dachshund. But fear not, his new owner is on a mission to turn him into the Biggest Loser: Canine Edition.

About Obie:

“He is a 5 year old standard dachshund. He is on a special diet to lose the weight and get back to being a happy dog. [His owners] think that he should weigh about 30 to 40 pounds. [They] immediately took him to the vet for blood work and it miraculously came back normal. [They] plan to do swim therapy with him and treadmill work once he starts to lose a little. He will need a dental and may eventually need to have excess skin surgically removed.”
