On April 14th, 2011, we rescued a Yellow Lab from Washington County who came in as a stray and weighed 142lbs. Yes, Butters, as he was named, wasn’t a dog, he was a house! He had probably lived outside in a yard and free fed…all day long. THE POOR GUY! Butters could hardly stay on his feet and had to lay down just to eat. Obviously, no one was going to adopt this giant dog who could hardly move. We wanted to fix that for him!
This is a video of Butters about half way through his diet when he realized he could actually run!
And a mere four months after we started his diet and fed him measured portions of food and vegetables that Shannon and Bill were vigilant about sticking to, Butters weighed in today at 89lbs! He has lost 53lbs! He has basically lost another large sized dog worth of weight! All of his fur has grown back in and his skin cleared up from eating a good quality diet.
So lets see that again. Here’s a pic of Butters today, sporting a waistline,
And here’s Butters four months ago!
Wow! What a champ! And another miracle…
