We have been asked what breed he is. Unfortunately, due to his incredibly excessive weight, we have no idea what he is! Our best guess is possibly Chihuahua/Dachshund mix but it is very hard to tell. He is a short guy. He should weigh probably 25-30 pounds but at his vet checkup today, he tipped the scale at 66.2 pounds!!!! Everyone is shocked by his appearance. His bloodwork all came back normal, which was shocking, but a urine sample was sent out to cover all bases to rule out any other underlying medical issues. However, as it looks right now, he is perfectly healthy with no medical reason to explain his obesity. Someone simply overfed him and likely fed him a steady diet of horribly unhealthy food. He will be started immediately on prescription diet food and joint supplements. This is day 1 but today is probably the most important of his life. His journey to health starts now!
