When 9 year old Ozzie arrived at Arizona Cactus Corgi Rescue late in 2010 he weighed over 60 pounds, a shocking weight for a dog that should weigh 30lbs or less. He was a sad sight, too fat to play, too fat to do anything but be sad. But AZCCR pack leader Vicki Combs knew there was still a happy Corgi inside there so Ozzie went to diet boot camp.
Many months on a diet of love, kibble, and pumpkin got Ozzie down to 30lbs and counting!
Voile! The new Ozzie!
He's in a foster home right now and waiting for his forever home. At 10 years old he's definitely a senior Corgi but you'd never know it when you look at that face. His foster mom says he loves to play tug and gets along pretty well with other dogs.
If your Corgi is too heavy, don't be mean and keep feeding too much like someone did to Ozzie. All you're doing is stealing real joy from your Corgi's life and joy from your own.
Update: Ozzie's diet plan is here.
