Students Banned From Feeding Dog After It Becomes Obese
A rescue dog turned guard dog at Wenhua Elementary School in Tamsui, New Taipei City has recently made headlines for getting a bit... chunky.
The mixed-breed dog was rescued by elementary students in Taiwan eight years ago. They named the beloved pup 'Little White Socks' and gave him the very important job or guarding the school.
"Everybody just loves Little White Socks, it's a very quiet and well-behaved dog," resident Ms Liu told MailOnline. "It will stand guard at the school entrance whenever the kids arrive or leave at school. I just hope that it can be healthy again."
The only problem is, the students may spoil the pup a little too much. Due to constant treats and lack of exercise (who would have guessed!) The dog has ballooned to 50kg -- or 110 pounds.
"It's like a pig! I don't know even how it's able to stand up properly with those skinny legs," a nearby store owner told reporters.
Along with a strict diet in place, the school has directed students to take the dog for walks and play catch with it.
Good luck, Little White Socks. Do they make weight watchers for pups?
