Obie, the sweet dachshund being helped with a major weight loss and fitness plan, gets some encouragement from his friend Nog.
Obie is a 5 year old standard dachshund who is on a mission to lose about 40 pounds. His weight in August was 77lbs. His owners lapsed into senile dementia and overfed him, then were no longer capable of caring for him and relinquished him. He is in a new home and on a weight loss program. His blood work is normal and he is otherwise healthy.
His progress can be followed at the Biggest Loser, Doxie Edition page on Facebook.
