Raphael weighed only 20.4 kg (45 lbs.) when he was found, approximately half the healthy weight for his size. He was taken in by the Sante Fe humane society and then fostered. Look at him now…
Raphael didn’t have any other underlying health problems, he just desperately needed to gain weight.
He began as such a skinny, sad dog.
When Raphael was put on the scale, he barely moved the needle.
But the dog’s spirits were high, he was ready to fatten up on a diet of hot dogs and love.
Once he gained a little weight, the dog was taken in by a foster family who had one goal: to fatten that pooch up!
And they have been doing a wonderful job. He’s actually a bit on the fat side and I couldn’t be happier about it. :)
Now, Raphael is a fat and sassy pup!
