It always bums me out when I see a dog that is clearly wayyy overweight and you know they’re struggling.

Maybe it’s a genetic thing, maybe they don’t get enough exercise, or maybe they just have owners who don’t really care.

Whatever the case, it’s always depressing because you know those pups would love to be healthy, fit, and to be able to run all over the place.

Well, here are some photos that are going to inspire you!

All of these dogs lost a bunch of weight and they look absolutely fabulous!

Let’s take a look!

1. Good job, Buddy!

My 90yo neighbor hasn’t walked her dog in years so I volunteered to do it for her. So proud of Buddy’s weight loss!!! from aww

Transformation Thursday! Zeus is a proof anything is possible if you work hard enough for it! You are looking at 10 month difference. 107lbs vs 82lbs. 10 months of healthy diet, exercise supported by thyroid medicine. Zeus, you were always perfect to me but now you are so much healthier. Mom is so proud of you and of herself too for being strong enough to help you transform into this healthy pup you’ve always meant to be! I am sorry I let you get to the 107lbs mark. Should have taken care of this long time ago. And loving doesn’t mean feeding you whatever you desire. You still beg for table scraps but we always find a healthier alternative for you. ❤️🐾 @happee_dawg #transformationthursday #doberman #dogweightloss #samedogsamecouch
