After examining Miss B, it was determined that she was morbidly obese at 20 pounds, which was twice as much as she should have weighed. Twenty pounds is a lot of weight for such a small dog to carry around, and everyone at the shelter knew that if Miss B was to have any chance at living a long, healthy life, she needed to lose around 10 pounds as soon as possible.
Miss B was taken in by an experienced foster couple, Sharon and Barry. They began taking Miss B out for walks, being careful to ease her into it, as too much exercise right away would be a strain on her chubby body. They even took her swimming at a local lake, doing everything they could to help her shed the pounds.
