Wolfgang the dog went on a diet. He was three times heavier than normal. This was unhealthy. His owner overfed him and then left him at an animal shelter. A dog lover rescued Wolfgang. She looked at him once and it was love at first sight. She took the overweight dog home and put him on a diet.

Wolfgang is now doing well. He has just 600 calories a day. He swims, walks and exercises every day. His weight is down to 28kgs, from 40kgs. His new owner is very happy. She said: "His personality shines through. He's just such a nice dog. It's so hard to say no to that face." Wolfgang has 37,000 followers on Instagram.
