PHOENIX - After months of vigorous exercise and a special diet, a 3-year-old Welsh Corgi is ready to find her "forever home."
Chiquita was 15 pounds overweight when she arrived at the Arizona Humane Society.
The pooch has been on a weight loss regimen since August, including water aerobics, and thanks to her foster family Chiquita has reached a healthy weight of 24 pounds.
The Arizona Humane Society says pet obesity is on the rise in the United States and the leading threat to American pets.
Now that Chiquita has reached a healthy weight, she's ready for adoption.
She will be available on Monday, January 20 at 11 a.m. at the Arizona Humane Society's Sunnyslope Campus located at 9226 N. 13th Avenue in Phoenix.
