I’m sure you have all heard of Obie, the obese Dachshund who weighed an astounding 77 pounds!


Obie’s life was in danger because he weighed over twice the recommended healthy weight for a dachshund. His elderly owners fed him far too much, almost to his death, and gave him up because of his health issues.

Obie's Owner

Obie’s new owner, Nora Vanatta, has a degree in animal sciences and should hopefully take good care of him. After about a year on a strict diet, lots of exercise and a lot of love, Obie is now a healthy 27 pounds!
