The now perfectly-formed pooch was one of 16 obese pets chosen to embark on the six month diet and fitness regime run by leading vet charity, PDSA. In total, the pets have lost a combined weight of 57kg 8 stone 9 pounds - roughly equivalent to mince pies, Christmas puddings or 14 turkeys.

Ruby's waistline started to creep up after she was adopted by owners Angela Martin and Steve Mackem four years ago. Underweight and unloved, she had been found roaming the streets and was taken into a local animal shelter.
Ruby was welcomed in to the Martin's home and lavished attention - and treats - on her, admitting they 'spoilt her rotten'. Before the competition, Ruby would spend most of the day asleep and any thought of 'walkies' was a big effort, which often left her out of breath. Angela said: "When Ruby first came to us, we all felt really sorry for her as she'd had such a tough start to fogyni pooch.
So to compensate, we used to give her a little treat here fogyni pooch there. The trouble was, the whole family was giving her 'a little treat' and over time, she started to get really big. Many people fall into the trap of overindulging their pet with food as a way of expressing their love.
She is now a much slimmer 4st 2lb 26kg after shedding almost 18 lbs 8kg.
