Munching on your favorite snacks could bring you temporary satisfaction, but losing all that extra weight you’ve gained from overeating could be a challenge. Weight loss is a journey best experienced with people who believe in you and who will support you along the way.
A seven-year-old pup named Strudel may be overweight, but her condition isn’t stopping her from enjoying her life. She is now on a weight-loss journey to keep herself healthy and to find her forever home.
When the pup’s first owners passed away, she was brought home by a new family. Sadly, Strudel’s health issues were too complicated for them, so the family decided to hand her over to the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter in Virginia.
She stayed in the shelter for months, only to be ignored by families who were looking for cuter dogs. As soon as people see her, she is instantly disregarded because of her overwhelming weight.
The shelter volunteers knew how special Strudel was, so they wanted to help her out. They were aware of how difficult it would be to get her adopted with her condition, so they decided to enroll the pup in a weight-loss program for dogs.
Strudel started the program with the help of Kindra Powell from the Hearts of Hounds Rescue. Kindra partnered with Kim, who is currently fostering Strudel while she undergoes her weight-loss journey.
The two lovely ladies also coordinated with John Cotthaus from Zoom Room and scheduled workouts and activities for Strudel. A vet is also monitoring the pup’s progress to make sure that she is on the right path.
Strudel also follows a diet plan and is currently on thyroid medication. The determined pooch also goes on a daily walk to the park, which she genuinely enjoys.
The pup might have gone through a lot, but she never fails to be a joy to everyone she meets. Check out the video below to know more about Strudel’s weight-loss journey!
