Obie the obese Dachshund is sadly, and adorably, very overweight. His last owner, either knowingly or out of ignorance, helped the five year old pup grow to the enormous weight of 77 lbs. For a Dachshund! That’s one fat hot dog!

Thankfully, he is in good hands now, and has been put on a very strict diet and exercise program. Here, we see Obie get quite a work out by walking outside for some fresh air. 

In America, even our pets have an obesity epidemic. The video went viral this week, and is showcased on DListed, PawNation, and NYDailyNews
