Watch This Overweight Stray Dog’s Amazing Transformation. The Last Photo Hit Me Hard.

This is a kind of dog rescue story that we've never seen before. Yes, the dog was abandoned. Yes, the dog was neglected. Yes, the dog was subsisting off of the kindness of strangers. However, this particular animal had a problem that not many in his situation have: He was morbidly obese.

The dog was living at a gas station on the outskirts of Brazil, and he was being fed by passersby. Unfortunately, the food people were giving him wasn't healthy for dogs, and he ballooned up to over 80 pounds. Rescuers decided to intervene, and what happened next is truly incredible.

When they found this dog, he weighed over 80 pounds.

Many passersby thought it was fun to feed him, but unfortunately, his poor diet caused him to gain a ton of weight.

That's when rescuers decided to intervene and get him out of this situation.

He received a bath, medical attention, and was immediately put on a strictly regulated, nutritious diet.

The workers called him Bolinha, and he's clearly enjoying all of the love and attention.
