This 3-year Chihuahua Rosemary Surrendered To Shelter To Be Euthanized Because Of Being Too Fat Finally Found Forever Home
Meet Rosemary, a Chihuahua that was morbidly obese
Luckily, the staff at the shelter was determined to heal Rosemary and find her a home: “This gal will go on a strict diet and exercise plan starting tomorrow, to get her back in shape and healthy!!!
Dogs this overweight are very sad; sure, they might love treats and human food, but causing damage to the heart, lungs and other vital organs is not a way to live and almost guarantees a shorter life expectancy! Poor girl can barely walk 10 steps before coming tired and out of breath. She is on medications for seizures as well!!! She will get a thorough exam from our veterinarian and be closely monitored during her stay with us!”
Rosemary was brought to a shelter by her previous owners for euthanasia
Luckily, the staff at the shelter decided to treat Rosemary and find her a new home
At first, Rosemary was 4 times heavier than a regular Chihuahua
How could you give up on that smile, though?
At her heaviest stage, Rosemary was on medications for seizures and wouldn’t have lived a long life
After a strict diet and exercise plan, Rosemary started getting better!
The Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana was constantly posting updates on Rosemary on Facebook
“When you’ve lost 11lbs and can finally be spayed because you’re not morbidly obese anymore”
It’s surprising to see how well Rosemary has recovered
And after a long journey, Rosemary was finally adopted by a loving family. Happy ending!
