Woody was a Husky and weighed 210 pounds. Compared to other Huskies, Woody was giant. He used to stay in Edmonton, Canada, with his foster mom, Pam, who was determined to make him lose weight. So she started his daily regime of walking long distances and eating his prescribed food.
Woody was a reasonably reserved dog and preferred to remain quiet most of the time. So when Pam took Woody to the park for the first time, he was skeptical about getting off the car due to his heavyweight. However, after much encouragement, the Husky finally got out of the car and began walking.
Within a month, his weight dropped from 210 pounds to 193 pounds. He got more active than before, and gradually Pam took him to off-leash dog parks. Once his fitness improved and Pam got more confident about Woody’s condition, she started taking his siblings with Woody to the park.
Another month passed, and Woody’s weight further dropped to 182 pounds. By this time, the Husky loved to go outside for long walks. Edmonton winters are severe, and Woody loved such cold weather. Soon his weight dropped to 171 pounds, and his personality also changed.
Woody began talking with others incessantly in his dog language. Initially, it was tough to make Woody eat his prescription food. However, soon he started liking it. His usual treats were bananas and carrots, which he never wanted, and Woody loved his regular walks.
Woody’s weight soon dropped to 160 pounds. He would get excited about his walks while sitting in the car. Woody loved to get his messages across loud and clear. His weight finally reached 152 pounds, which was a massive achievement for the dog.
Regular walks and monitoring Woody’s food intake helped the dog shed his unwanted body weight. Pam wanted to help the Husky get back in shape before he was ready for adoption, and she was pleased with the result.
