A dog named Wolfgang had to go on a diet. He was three times heavier than normal. This was dangerous for his health. He risked having many diseases and problems. Wolfgang the beagle was left at an animal shelter. His owner overfed him and then abandoned him. Many visitors came to the shelter for a dog. No one took Wolfgang because he was so big. Then, dog lover Erin McManus came to the rescue. She looked at Wolfgang and it was love at first sight. She took the overweight dog home and decided to help him lose weight. She put him on a diet.

Wolfgang is now doing very well. He is limited to 600 calories a day. He swims in the pool every day, goes on walks, and exercises on a treadmill. The weight is falling off him. Ms McManus is very happy with his progress. She makes his food. He eats turkey, vegetables and some supplements. Beagles usually weigh around 13kgs, but Wolfgang weighed 40kgs. He has 37,000 followers on his own Instagram account. McManus said: "His personality shines through. He's just such a nice dog. It's so hard to say no to that face." One fan on Instagram wrote: "That boy touches my heart."
