All of us have likely heard dogs referred to as man’s best friends time and time again and there is a good reason for that. They arguably are our most loyal and lovable animal friends. A huge portion of the population lives with at least one of these four-legged, furry buddies at our side at every turn, and when you have a bad day they are always there to comfort you. There are a few things they want from us in return, affection may be the thing they desire most, but that doesn’t mean that alone is enough if you want to be good to them.
As these wild animals have become domesticated they have turned to us, their pack leader, to provide them with the sustenance they require. While there is nothing that breaks our hearts more than a skinny and sickly puppy, the next worse thing is a dog that has been overfed and under exercised to the point of morbid obesity. That is what inspired us to put together this list of the some of the world’s fattest dogs, in order to serve as a warning against allowing this to happen to the animals we all love so much. So, if you want to see how bad things can get, or if your curiosity has gotten away from you, we encourage you to read on.
Keep in mind that we can’t say with one-hundred percent certainty that there aren’t any dogs that are fatter than these out there. After all, we aren’t the folks at Guinness, not all obese puppies are reported and each breed has very different target weights. Instead, what you will find here is a list of the most overweight dogs we could track down in order of how much their stories shocked us here at The Richest. Finally, it should be known that in most of these cases the dog in question was nursed back to health and has dropped a huge portion of their size.
15 Dennis, the 56-pound Dachshund
14 Tyty, the 14-pound Chihuahua
13 Alfie, the 175-pound Labrador
12 Cila, the 112-pound American Bulldog
11 Barney, the 154-pound Dalmatian
10 The Mystery Fat Flying Dog
9 Fat Vincent, the Depressed Dachshund
8 Samson, the 187-pound Labrador
7 Hooch, the 294-pound Rottweiler
6 Buddy, the 180-pound Australian Shepherd
5 Millie, the 74-pound Cocker Spaniel
4 Kale Chips, the 85-pound Beagle
3 Bear, the 147-pound Doberman
2 Bolinha, the 80-pound Mutt
1 Obie, the 77-pound Dachshund
A five-year-old standard dachshund who weighed in at seventy pounds when he came to the world’s attention, he took rolly-polly to an all new level. A breed whose target weight should be around thirty-two pounds at the most, Obie was tipping the scales at 77 pounds which is more than double. Numbers aside, however, it was his mammoth size for the type of dog he is that really made him stand out among the fattest doggies in the world. Taken in for blood work, his vets were shocked to see that the tests came back as normal which is an absolute blessing considering how much his excess weight could have damaged his body. Eventually able to drop fifty pounds from his frame with the help of his new caregivers, he looks very little like he once did, thankfully.
