Tony was so overweight he couldn't walk up stairs. But he's lost over 50 pounds thanks to a house full of dogs. Now he gets to go on the craziest adventures around the country...with his dog girlfriend!
he's 50 pounds overweight wrong way don't get discouraged I just adopted Tony I think Tony had really given up when I first showed him love he kind of nudged his head into me and stole my heart mr. just worked out my biggest worries are heart problems we have been joint issues he needs to lose a third of his body work Tony was found as a stray he was adopted and returned I don't think that he felt that he would ever really experience love but this time he is never going back again we're home Tony just really means a family that believes in him my family consists of eight other rescue dogs and Tony makes nine you can drink out of all the Bulls he just really didn't believe in himself come on boy come on boy come on you're gonna come on the first night he was kind of distant he would try to hide but it was so big there was nowhere he could really hide Howard dog is feeling on the inside is what you see on the outside he wouldn't stand to eat he just couldn't hold himself up he couldn't catch a tree all those words he had been so used to the people not giving him affection I didn't want him to think that's what was going to happen I'm going to swarm this dog with so much love so that he knows that he is the most special dog I believe that is going to be the key ingredient to his success because I go you can't get on one bit come on come on let's go baby go boy Tony bear where you going day one didn't Tony toned there you go buddy the way Tony is going to lose the weight is by just doing his best to keep up with the pack Oh keep going Tony was so surprised by how much I was trying to motivate him got this come on you think ugh he's never heard it before those ABS coming in you're so close didn't it let Tony catch up whew so he could play with you let's totally play with you style please don't give up Tony I have no doubt you can jump out of this car come on yeah even after that first workout Tony seemed to have a little bit more confidence [Music] yeah you home you know between his first business 147 thanks Tony [Music] Oh buddy yeah the first day that I left for a work meeting was big for us team Tony chased me on the empty road that's when I finally knew he knows that I love him I really see a lot of my younger self in him I thought no one would love me I had severe learning disabilities I was so tired of getting bully one day I ran away from school and I ran to a dog shelter I started going there every day I would talk to them I would tell them I promise I'm going to save all of you I had a nine-to-five job but I quit to travel around the country and promote dog adoption as soon as Tony is a little bit more mobile we're gonna hit the road again and show people what dog adoption is really all about and this family of misfits who we have is unconditional love each dog is such a great example everyone that meets Stella says that it used to be afraid of pitbulls all she wants to do is puddle butters is very abused so I thought he was gonna be this very scared dog and instead he is the most confident Beast Beau's owner told me to find him a home or take him to the shelter tally is very demanding but she deserves it really does you got in the mouth I didn't think Lily was gonna make it she was having several seizures a day did you get off a Molly Molly is from that shelter when I was in school Queen she's the oldest out of the package and then any the most petrified chihuahua I have ever seen she definitely not better cut now do something penny we're gonna do is that a curiosity penny are you good or is Tony crushing you you chihuahuas fell in love with Tony right away jumping on him and he just doesn't do anything the whole day that's Queens bed buddy they are a huge reason why Tony felt at home if the littles are too much bo will actually step in between them and let them know like all right that's enough bo is 100% Tony's personal trainer Tony is trying to keep up with him he motivates him in every single way he just needs to lose a little bit more weight the foreign pony is ready for the road good boy well you do get out I never saw it coming I was actually nervous about how Lily will do with him you don't have to stand right next to them Lily go pee as well lily and Tony are attached to the hip look what we have here oh my goodness no don't get up Lily go back into the position they just adore each other they always have to be touching each other Tony is Lily's boyfriend you don't want to mess with her boyfriend I think Tony gained a lot of confidence from Lily look at him moving around

single way except for how loving he is and how beautiful he is I believed in him and then he believed in himself it doesn't matter the size what the breed is we accept each other no matter what a
