PORTLAND, OREGON (WITI) -- A pudgy pup in Portland, Oregon is on the final leg of his weight loss journey.

Obie the dachshund tipped the scales at 77 pounds last August, but now weighs 37 pounds.

Vets gave Obie a "tummy tuck" on Tuesday, April 30th -- taking off about two pounds of loose skin.

Vets say Obie will need several weeks to fully recover -- and he's still losing weight! His owner plans to get him down to 28 pounds.
