Obie’s former owners were an elderly couple in poor health who loved their dog, but sadly, were unaware of the harm they were causing him by constantly over-feeding him and not allowing him to exercise.  Eventually, a relative of the couple stepped in, and Obie was given to Nora Vanatta, a certified veterinary technician with a degree in animal science.  Nora wasted no time getting Obie on a diet and made it her mission to help him get back to his healthy, energetic self.  After about a year on a carefully tailored diet and exercise plan, Obie was ready to show off his new beach body! Take a look at Obie now!
