Honey is 8 years old. We got her in August from a lady who could no longer care for. Honey was literally being fed to death. Her peak weight was 14 pounds, but she was 12lbs when we got her.
Here are pictures of her the day she came home to me:





After a steady diet of BARF and lots of exercise, she is down to 6 pounds! This dog has lost 50% of her weight. Here is her now.

She looks GREAT! I need to get Britney on a diet like that...she weighs about 6 pounds..and thats about, I'd say, 2 extra pounds that are hard on her little back legs cause they're so skinny and small.

poor thing must have been fed lots of table scraps.

i feel so sad for her when i look @ the heavier pics :(!
She was. She was being fed canned food, which was very high in fat, and made her teeth horrible. She was also given about 5-6 large biscuits a day. The owner would feed her off her own plate at dinner. And usually the owner would throw deli meat ontop of her canned food. I really had to bite my tongue when the old owner was explaining this to me. Needless to say, we did NOT stick with that diet. :)
