A Middle Tennessee rescue dog is on an extreme fitness plan after indulging in too many homecooked meals. The dog, named Coach Milner, has more than a few pounds to burn off.
TheWheaten mix ended up at the animal shelter in Cheatham County, tipping the scales at more than 90 pounds. But he should weigh closer to 50 pounds, according to his veterinarian.
Coach's original owners loved him so much, they cooked for him every day.
"From what I understand, he was being fed bacon and eggs in the morning and he got a dinner of chicken and dumplings every night. It was just too dense for a dog his size," said associate veterinarian Lisa Martin.
Snooty Giggles Dog Rescue took him in and put him to work.
He gets on an underwater treadmill three days a week at Animalia Health and Wellness in Franklin.
"Unfortunately, obesity in our pets is becoming an epidemic just as it is in people," Martin said. "We just need to get out there and get them more active and watch what we're feeding them."
Coach has already lost eight pounds in just a couple weeks of treatment.
He is on a special diet now, and once he starts getting in shape, he'll be ready to be adopted by the right family.
