The reason Raphael was probably underweight in the first place was because he wasn’t being fed at all, now that he started getting 2 or 3 squares a day he naturally gained weight.
Raphael didn’t have any other underlying health problems, he just desperately needed to gain weight.
He began as such a skinny, sad dog.
When Raphael was put on the scale, he barely moved the needle.
But the dog’s spirits were high, he was ready to fatten up on a diet of hot dogs and love.
Once he gained a little weight, the dog was taken in by a foster family who had one goal: to fatten that pooch up!
And they have been doing a wonderful job. He’s actually a bit on the fat side now. Just look at this lazy bum – LOL 🙂
Raphael, the fat and sassy pup!
