Shep is a nearly 4 year old Border Collie male who right now is extremely overweight at 88 lbs (as of 5.12.20). As owner surrender, Shep is a wonderfully sweet dog who loves water and playing with his foster pups and family. He started gaining weight in 2017, possibly partly because he was in an apartment all day long and/ or crated quite a bit. He has a wonderful foster who has committed to helping Shep along his weight loss journey, including daily walks and swims in the pool! BCSAVE would like Shep to get to around 70 lbs before transferring him to a permanent home for further weight loss unless his adopter will commit to regular vet visits and check ins with BCSAVE to ensure his weight loss continues.
