Dog Was So Fat It Needed to Be Put Down. But Then, One Person Had a Different Idea

We all love to look at cute, chubby animals. They’re fluffy, silly looking, and downright adorable. So, what’s not to love?

Sometimes we overlook the negative effects of obesity in animals and value their cuteness above their health. We need to remember, however, that it is a medical condition that it is completely treatable — which is exactly what this one dog proved.

Pearl, a sweet Jack Russel mix, unfortunately ended up in the hands of an abusive family. When she was abandoned by them in a parking lot, she got a lucky break.
