The poor pooch was subsequently diagnosed with high cholesterol and at risk of redeveloping a number of serious health compilations as a result of his size.
However, with some love and care – and a strict diet and exercise - from Mary Tipton from dog rescue group K-9 Angels Rescue, he’s been restored to peak condition and is now referred to as “Skinny Vinnie!”
Prior to his arrival at the shelter, he’s believed to have lived on a diet of fast-food.
But look at him now!
Well done, Skinny Vinnie!
