Oh Dachshunds. They would literally eat their weight if they could.

In the case of Dennis the doxie, he DID and more. Last year, due to a diet of White Castle burgers and fries, he tipped the pup scale at 56 lbs!

However, once taken in by current owner Brooke Burton, and put on a strict diet and exercise regimen, Dennis was able to start 2015 at a healthy weight! Running around at a svelte 13 lbs, he’s had three surgeries to remove the extra skin.

Talk about a doxie with some moxie! Now Dennis runs around with the best of ’em, chasing squirrels, playing fetch and going on walks. Though, according to Burton, he still adores food. As she told ABC-affiliate WSYX-TV, at feeding time, “He does a little dance.”
