Are you looking for a weight loss program? Well, so am I. Maybe you can help me. My name is Duckie. You can see by my pictures, someone loved me too much. I'm a little overweight, well, maybe I'm a lot overweight. I was rescued from a shelter...where I weighed in at about 45lbs. But since I was rescued, my foster mom is helping me lose about 3lbs a month...sometimes more. But I have a lot of weight still to go and the vet won't neuter me until I lose some more. As of December I am down about 6lbs! I even have my own Facebook page where my foster family is posting my progress I am a Rat Terrier, and I am about 5-years old. My foster family says I am a sweet, loving, but I have to lose about half of my body weight. So, If you want to join me and help me lose weight, I am working really hard eating my healthy treats like green beans..pretty good stuff. I am house-trained, crate-trained and I love belly rubs. I am also up to date with my vaccinations, and I am microchipped. Are you interested in a chubby guy who is working on regaining his younger body? Well, fill out an adoption application and let my foster family know you want to meet me.
