Meredith went to pick up an overweight dog to foster, and she couldn’t believe it when she saw her. The dog was somehow even bigger than the pictures had led on. At 63 pounds, Bertha waddled on over until she had to sit and take a breather. There was a lot of work to be done here, but Meredith just wanted to try.
The dog couldn’t go for very long, so walks were out of the question at first. So her rescuer would count her calories and help her swim using a harness. Eventually, the harness properly fit around her, which was a great first sign! When Bertha got down to half of her original weight, she was all smiles all the time. Wait until you see her now! 🙂
