Arbuckle weighed 116 pounds when he was found lying face down near the farm. He could barely walk because his small joints could not support his weight.
Targeted Rescue of Los Angeles welcomed him and vowed to help him.
An examination by the veterinarian revealed that Arbuckle suffered from hypothyroidism, causing his body to inflate like a balloon.
Arbuckle was immobilized due to joint pain, so his initial treatment was based solely on medication. Over time, he lost weight and was able to walk again!
Once Arbuckle started losing weight, there was no turning back for him. Meanwhile, actress Jane Lynch and her partner discover Arbuckle and decide to adopt him.
They gave him a loving home forever. Arbuckle has single-handedly become a well-known influencer, as his difficult weight loss journey has given hope and motivation to many people.
No wonder it’s called a miracle dog! See for yourself, it’s beautiful now!
Update: We are saddened by Arbuckle’s recent passing. He was 9 years old.
After his death, the orphanage received $5,000 in overnight donations, all from people who supported Arbuckle and wanted to celebrate his inspiring life. We hope you will enlighten us from the stars, Arbi. Rest in peace, good boy.
