Wolfgang the dog had to go on a diet. He was three times heavier than normal. This was unhealthy. He risked getting diseases. His owner overfed him and then abandoned him at an animal shelter. Many customers came to the shelter. No one took Wolfgang because he was so big. Then, a dog lover came to the rescue. She looked at Wolfgang and it was love at first sight. She took the overweight beagle home and put him on a diet to lose weight.

Wolfgang is now doing well. He has only 600 calories a day. He swims, goes on walks and exercises every day. He is losing weight. His new owner is very happy with him. She said: "His personality shines through. He's just such a nice dog. It's so hard to say no to that face." She makes his food. He eats turkey and vegetables. Beagles usually weigh around 13kgs, but Wolfgang weighed 40kgs. He now has his own Instagram account. He has 37,000 followers.
