Before finding a spot to rest safely, Neville spent weeks wandering the streets of San Bernardino, California, in the stifling summer heat. The 2-year-old shepherd mix’s background was unknown, and in addition to being completely alone, she was also quite overweight.

Thankfully, a Good Samaritan stumbled across the stray and gave her food and water before taking her to the nearest shelter. Staff immediately posted on Facebook about the good girl, whom they first believed to be a boy. “[Neville’s a] total love bug.”

“[She’s a] total love bug, everyone is in love,” the post said. “He has a thyroid problem. This poor dear needs our help.”

Neville had definitely been mistreated as she weighed 130 pounds, which was more than two to three times the recommended weight for a dog of her size.

Staff couldn’t believe Neville, a 2-year-old shepherd mix that was obviously overweight, hadn’t found a home.

Jodi Kroeger, a representative for the San Bernardino Animal Shelter, told The Dodo that “she was only at our shelter for a brief length of time before she was adopted.” But we were aware that she required support.

Neville’s post was successful, and she moved into her new house in late July, but she still need a health and weight reduction strategy.

Niki, Neville’s mother, told The Dodo, “We took her to the vet the day after we got her home and we did tests.” Although her thyroid is low, hypothyroidism has not yet been diagnosed in her.

In order for Neville to exercise without harming her joints, Niki is now seeking for a pool. Fortunately, her most recent checkup brought excellent news.

She weighed 112 pounds today as opposed to 130 pounds in the shelter, according to Niki. In the parking lot, I sobbed.

Niki gives Neville the credit for all the good that has resulted from saving her even though he provided her a decent home where she is loved and cared for.

Niki claimed, “She’s given me a newfound feeling of purpose.” She recently gave me fresh motivation to keep working with animals, something I had been struggling with.
