A morbidly obese dog has shed three stone.
The adorable Beagle named Kale Chips ballooned to six stone and was struggling to walk but has finally reached his goal weight after following a strict diet for 12 months.
The four-legged animal - who's eight years old - was rescued by experts at Happy Dog Barkery in Chicago when they decided to change his diet and up his exercise regime.
Beth Staley, who owns the small shelter, told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "When he came to us he was morbidly obese. He was in a lot of pain and was such a grump because of it.
"There's been such a change. He's reached his target and he's doing great. He's able to enjoy life now."
