Fat Vincent Is Now Skinny Vinnie

When Vinnie found his way to a Houston animal shelter last September, he weighed 38 pounds and had the BMI of over 60. If you wondered what a dachshund weighing 38 pounds looks like, wonder no more!
He also had insanely high cholesterol and, more horrifically, his spine actually bent downwards when he stood up because of his belly. Poor little guy even got the nickname Fat Vincent.

Well, no more!

This is Vinnie now, after dropping to under 18 pounds and getting a new nickname – Skinny Vinnie.

The secret behind Vinnie’s amazing transformation? Well, for one, he started eating healthy, which was pretty hard for him but he persevered.

Ms. Melissa is trying to get me to love the green bean. I promise I am trying, but I am just not a fan yet!
