OHIO (WITI) — Dennis the Dachshund is living out his New Year’s resolution.
It may be hard to imagine, but not long ago Dennis weighed a whopping 56 pounds when his owner got him from a relative.
With a little bit of effort, his weight was brought down to 29 pounds. And now after a little nip-tuck surgery, Dennis is able to live a more normal life.
“He now can go up and down the steps, he was never able to do that. Run even faster, he thinks he rules the house,” said Dennis’ owner, Brooklyn Burton.
After surgery, doctors were able to remove loose skin and slim Dennis down to 13 pounds.
