Shreveport’s Fat to Fit Dog Looking for Home Is Officially Famous
We did it y'all. We freaking did it. We made Rosemary a famous gorgeous girl.
We All Know About Rosemary the Chihuahua That Was Dumped at a Shelter Because She Was So Fat She Couldn't Move.
Rosemary the obese chihuahua has been on a crazy journey to find a home. The pudgy pooch caught the attention of the Shreveport-Bossier community because she's chasing those weight loss goals like Rocky Balboa is her life coach.
All of Our Cheering On Rosemary Got Her Noticed By the Dodo.

The Dodo describes their mission as "Building a digital brand for everyone who loves animals and cares about their wellbeing. Our goal is to serve up emotionally and visually compelling, highly sharable animal-related stories and videos to as many people as possible to help make caring about animals a viral cause. We want our readers to fall in love with animals, have fun and be entertained while they’re doing it, and feel empowered to help animals in need. The Dodo is for everyone who loves animals and wants to spread that love and make the world a better place for them."
Rosemary may still be thicker than a snicker, but she's come a long way since we first found out about her.
At just 3 years of age her previous owners got her so overweight and then decided they didn't want her anymore, so they dropped her off to get euthanized at a local shelter.
Thankfully the staff at the shelter was determined to find her a home so they reached out to the Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana.
Rosemary is the heaviest chihuahua many in Rescue have ever seen. Rosemary weighed in at over 24 pounds. Keep in mind most chihuahuas weigh less than 6 pounds.
Remember when Rosemary went from 24 pounds to 17.4 pounds?
We all celebrated that day.
