Beau came to us as an extremely obese owner surrender. He weighed in at 40.2 pounds on arrival, and could barely walk. Since then, thanks to diet change and regular activity, he has lost a remarkable amount of weight in only a few months! We will post 2 "before" pics as well as a more recent one so you can see how much better Beau looks. More important is how much better Beau feels! He is able to walk around, prance with a bit of swagger, handle the ramp to the deck with no problem, and even play with other dogs at his foster home. As time goes one we look forward to eventually needing a "tuck" done on his extra skin, but for now we are thrilled with Beau's progress and continue to sponsor him in foster care on his way to full recovery! Beau has a lot of personality and is a fun but assertive guy, so he will be quite a pet once he's fully empowered!
