Meet Nick who will go from FIDO FAT to FIDO FABULOUS!

Sarah & Brian Surritt from Vista, California, submitted this winning essay for their dog Nick who will be part of the weight loss study in our From Fido FAT to Fido FABULOUS challenge.

Meet Nick. He is 82.6 lbs of love and should be closer to 60. He’s 6 weeks new to our family- rescued from Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas where Sarah volunteers. We assume he came from a home where he didn’t get to play outside much or run so the weight piled on.   

We’ve brought him to our home and have high hopes that by providing him with exercise while improving his overall diet and mental health that we will be able to help him drop his extra weight. But we need help! We need accountability!

With three young children of our own - teaching the importance of good diet combined with exercise is on the top of our list.  Nothing is different for the animals in our household! He’s such a lovebug but his loud (yet funny), very obvious “groaning”  every time he lies down is a tell tale sign the weight is effecting him!!  We’d love your help!


       Wiggles and Wags,
