Puppy Abandoned at Shelter for the Most Heartbreaking Reasons

Meet Darwin. He is an eight-year-old Beagle with a big life problem. His previous owners dumped him at a shelter a year ago because they believed he was too fat and too old for them. Well, people, he didn’t get this fat because he cooked his own gourmet meals, you know. I’m bothered endlessly by the fact that someone would dump a dog for a reason like this, especially since there is nothing you can do about the passing of time and age; and the reason he is overweight is because you continue to feed him entirely too much without exercising him enough. What a selfish, rude, horrible family. I hope the man of the house doesn’t decide to treat his wife as he treated his dog and dump her for a younger, thinner version. Though karma works mysteriously.

Darwin weighed 90-pounds. That’s twice what a Beagle should weigh. He was barely able to walk, his health was poor because of his weight and he has a thyroid condition that makes it more difficult for him to actually lose weight and live healthy. Fortunately, a local rescue took over and has completely transformed this beautiful dog in the course of just one year. If only Darwin’s old family could see him now; all svelte and healthy and looking far younger than he’s looked his entire life living with those horrible people who call themselves dog owners; sure, if you add “of the worst kind” to the end of that label.
