Everybody say hi to Obie the obese dachshund! With a whopping weight of 77 lbs (35 kg), Obie takes the title of the fattest dachshund in the world.
That’s three times the size of an average dachshund, to be precise, and two times more than the normal maximum size of this breed.
Despite the obesity, Obie is still one very cute dogie with the sweetest set of puppy eyes we’ve seen in a while.
But his condition is actually quite serious as he had to be put on a strict diet in order to survive. The current goal for this mega-sausage dog is to lose about 40 lbs (18 kg), which is a rather difficult task taking his current weight into consideration.
Obie has even got his very own Facebook page named ‘Biggest Loser, Doxie Edition’, which keeps track of his weight loss regime.
