‘Fat Vincent’ The Dachshund Slims Down And Loves Life

2 months, 2 days ago

A formerly obese dachshund is almost ready to strut his stuff straight into a new home now that he’s fell 21 pounds.

That’s a lot for the little puppy, who could scarcely stroll when he weighed in at 38 pounds and landed at Texas’ Harris County Animal Shelter eight months ago, after his owner died, according to CNN . The 7-year-old puppy, who became known as “Fat Vincent, ” had high cholesterol and was at severe danger for a slew of serious health problems.

Luckily for Vincent, Mary Tipton of Houston dog rescue group K-9 Angels Rescue was at the shelter when the pooch indicated up. She posted a photo of the enormous pup online, and a dachshund rescuer Melissa Anderson contacted her within 15 minutes, offering to foster the puppy and guide him on his journey to fitness. She’s been documenting Vincent’s adventures on Facebook since September.

His regimen includes a new, healthy diet, long walks and even water aerobics in Anderson’s pool.

It wasn’t easy at first. Vincent was “detoxing” after what Anderson suspects was an all-fast-food diet, and when she took Vincent out for walks, passers-by would attain mean comments and presume she was to blame for his weight.

These days, Vincent has a new love for strolls and a more upbeat attitude.

“He is the sweetest, funniest, happiest guy now, ” Anderson told CNN .

The pup even has a new nickname: “Skinny Vinnie.” He’s not up for adoption yet, according to ABC 6, though K-9 Rescue has plenty of other adorable puppies for adoption on its website.

Though most pets don’t get as plainly fat as Vincent, obesity is a common issue for cats and dog. The Association for Pet Obesity Prevention estimated in 2014 that 17.6 percent of dogs in the US were obese and 36 percentage were overweight. The numbers for cats also didn’t look good, with an estimated 28.1 percent obese and 29.8 percent overweight.

Many pet owners simply don’t realises when their pets have gained too much weight.

“Whenever their veterinarian tells them their pet needs to lose weight, they often can’t believe it because they don’t see it, ” Steve Budsberg, the director of clinical research at the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine, said in an APOP release .

And though some people think it’s cute when a pet has a few extra pounds, excess weight can lead to serious health repercussions like diabetes, high blood pressure and arthritis.

The bright side is, if Fat Vincent can lose weight, your pet definitely can, too.

He found the best way to do this was to feed her a little peanut butter!

“So. Good.”

Inspired by Bailey, he began photographing his clients’ pooches feeing peanut butter too!

As part of Murray’s process, the dogs are only devoted one or two spoonfuls — too much peanut butter isn’t good for dogs.

He then takes 25 -7 5 photos of the dog’s desperate attempts to lap up all that deliciousness.

He says that some of the dogs have a hard time sitting still, but the majority of members of the time, “they’re so focused on the peanut butter, that even the most fidgety dogs stay put until they’re finished.”

Murray stresses that he only lets puppies consume peanut butter that doesn’t contain Xylitol, which is harmful to pups.

As of Friday, Murray will have photographed over 125 puppies for this project. All these photos and others can be found in his upcoming book For the Love of Peanut Butter: A Photo Booth .
