Weight Loss of the Day: This Brazilian Stray Pup Has Quite the Transformation After a Kind Clinic Takes Him in



A Brazilian stray dog had quite a tough life on the street that left him with no exercise and extra helpings of unhealthy food.

Once ridiculed for his 80 pounds as he made his way around with great difficulty due to bad joints and breathing problems, the committed canine has a new leash lease on life.

    Abandoned in an old gas station, he came to be known as Bolinha, which means pellet or ball in Portugese.

    He was the 'mascot' of the nearby restaurant/gas station, until Roger Oliveira brought him to the organization.

    The physical therapy they gave Bolinha had to be slow and began in water to make it easier on his straining joints.

    After 20 days, Bolinha lost 6 pounds. Down from the 80.5 he had when he came into the clinic.

    Of course, charitable clinics like this need all the help they can get, so maybe stop by their Facebook page and say hi!
