Chubby dog put on strict diet after getting hilariously wedged in doggy door
A chunky dog who made the most of pigging out on KFC and steak while his owner was away has been put on a diet after getting stuck in a door and ripping it clean off its hinges.
Owner Charmaine Hulley got Drax two years ago, when she gave the poor pup a home after he was found living on the streets looking frightened and malnourished.
She said when she first bought Drax home he was too scared to look at anyone or eat, but fast forward to now and the problem is long gone, with the dog indulging in his new life of luxury.
He transformed from skin and bones into a healthy figure, but recently Charmaine headed off to live with her mum for a few months for personal reasons.
She left him and her three other rescue dogs in the care of her partner Taylor, who due to working long hours said he ended up feeding Drax “a lot of human food, steak and KFC”, as reported by LadBible.
Drax’s weight gain was cruelly exposed when Taylor visited Charmaine with the dogs and Drax got the doggy door wedged around his body while trying to fit through.
In his defence, the door at Charmaine’s mum’s house is intended for little dogs, but his owners admitted even the one at his own home in Australia is getting “a bit snug”.
Charmaine shared photos of Drax’s mishap on the Dogspotting Facebook group with the caption ‘Diet time…’ and other members immediately fell in love with the happy-looking dog.
She said: “He’s the most placid dog I’ve ever met. He loves everyone and you can just put him anywhere and there’s no separation anxiety or anything.
“In two years, I’ve heard him bark twice. He doesn’t cause any trouble, everyone loves him. He’s so sweet and just spoilt rotten now.”
