Dachshund Drops over 40 Pounds in 2 Years after Eliminating Diet of Burgers and Pizza

Dachshund drops over 40 pounds in 2 years after eliminating diet of burgers and pizza – It’s the little canine that could.

Two years ago, Dennis could barely walk a few steps without getting winded. At 56 pounds, he was around five times the size of a normal, healthy dachshund. Now, after losing 75% of his body weight, the weiner dog has found new lease on life.

Dennis’ previous owner had been feeding him a steady diet of White Castle burgers and pizza, paying no attention to his excessive growth. It wasn’t until Brooke Burton, a family relative, saw Dennis’ terrible condition, and convinced the owner to give him up to her, that he did.

Burton immediately put Dennis on a steady diet of dry food and exercise, along with lots of playtime with her two other rescue dogs. The dog also had to undergo three surgeries to remove the loose skin he was tripping over. But he’s a happy dog now!
