HOUSTON — We’ve got the perfect motivation to help you get summertime fine! Check out this leaner wiener.

A husky dachshund at a shelter in Houston has gone from “Fat Vincent” to “Skinny Vinny!”

He started out tipping the scale at 38 pounds — double the size he should be — with his belly nearly dragging on the ground. Now, Skinny Vinny weighs in at a slim and trim 17 pounds.

So, how did he do it?! The right way — a lot of walking, sweating, and eating right.

You go boy!

But Vinny’s weight loss challenge isn’t over. He still has a pound and a half to reach his goal weight. But once he does, he’ll be ready for adoption.
