Lots of people often have trouble visualizing what their overweight animals should look like at a pet weight. Veterinarians will give various descriptions to owners, such as how there should be a tuck in the waist visible from both the top down and from the side profile for many breeds. Here are some outlined photos of overweight dogs to show what a rough acceptable weight would look like on them. Every breed is unique and will have different attributes for their build and body style depending on their lineage.

Senior cat begs her mom to watch movies every day — watch what movie always makes her calm down 😻
Judy, a purebred pointer, was the mascot of several ships in the Pacific, and was captured by the Japanese in 1942 and taken to a prison camp. There she met Aircraftsman Frank Williams, who shared his small portion of rice with her.
Judy raised morale in the POW camp, and also barked when poisonous snakes, crocodiles or even tigers approached the prisoners. When the prisoners were shipped back to Singapore, she was smuggled out in a rice sack, never whimpering or betraying her presence to the guards.
The next day, that ship was torpedoed. Williams pushed Judy out of a porthole in an attempt to save her life, even though there was a 15-foot drop to the sea. He made his own escape from the ship, but was then recaptured and sent to a new POW camp.
He didn't know if Judy had survived, but soon he began hearing stories about a dog helping drowning men reach pieces of debris after the shipwreck. And when Williams arrived at the new camp, he said: "I couldn’t believe my eyes! As I walked through the gate, a scraggly dog hit me square between the shoulders and knocked me over. I’d never been so glad to see the old girl!"
They spent a year together at that camp in Sumatra. "Judy saved my life in so many ways," said Williams. "But the greatest of all was giving me a reason to live. All I had to do was look into those weary, bloodshot eyes and ask myself: 'What would happen to her if I died?' I had to keep going."
Once hostilities ceased, Judy was then smuggled aboard a troopship heading back to Liverpool. In England, she was awarded the Dickin Medal (the "Victoria Cross" for animals) in May 1946. Her citation reads: "For magnificent courage and endurance in Japanese prison camps, which helped to maintain morale among her fellow prisoners, and also for saving many lives through her intelligence and watchfulness".
At the same time, Frank Williams was awarded the PDSA's White Cross of St. Giles for his devotion to Judy. Frank and Judy spent a year after the war visiting the relatives of English POWs who had not survived, and Frank said that Judy "always provided a comforting presence to the families."
When Judy finally died at the age of 13, Frank spent two months building a granite and marble memorial in her memory, which included a plaque describing her life story.

My name is Renaissance. (Reni)
I used to have a job. I was the full-time support dog to a human lady who really needed me. We went everywhere together walks, stores, even to church! She was older and she trusted me to walk slowly and never try to dart away to visit other dogs, cats or squirrels. My human spoke my language, which is sign language. Some years ago I lost my hearing. It hasn’t been a problem though, as I understand and respond to hand signals. However I don’t know the sign for sadness, which I felt when my lady passed away and I lost my home and my purpose. I hope I will be lucky enough to find that kind of right-fit home again and keep it for the rest of my life.
I’m staying with a nice foster family, but what I really want is a human that I can be with all day, every day. I’m a companion dog! My ideal human works from home or is retired. While I like kids, I do startle easily because of the deafness, so probably the best fit for me is a house with only bigger humans. I do well with other animals. As mentioned, I’m very easy on a leash and calm in public.
I have a mind of my own. For instance, if someone signs for me to “sit”, I will definitely consider it. However if I don’t want to I’ll give my head a big shake “no”. My foster family thinks this is funny, but I’m just letting you now I’m an independent thinker.
I was named Renaissance because I’m a classical Pyr beauty. Many people only see my flowing white hair and friendly smile. I certainly attract a lot of attention from strangers with my sweet good-dogness. But that’s not nearly all there is to me - I’m extra smart. Not to brag, but I know a ton of command signs that I use to do my job as a companion very well. I’m also extra loving and bring a sense of calm and security to a household.
Consider me for the job of loyal companion! I bring years of experience and will work hard and sleep hard for you.
