Man’s Told He Has 5 Years To Live, So He Goes To A Shelter And Asks For An ‘Obese, Middle-Aged Dog’

This is the touching story of Eric and Peety, a duo that has the strongest bond of canine-human friendship, ever. They depended on each other in times of need, and make a beautiful pair.

Eric was severely overweight a few years ago, till he was 348 pounds. This threatened his life – he spent thousands of dollars on medications alone on a monthly basis. He also became socially reclusive due to his physique, weight and looks. He adopted Peety, who was also overweight, from a local shelter one day – the pair bonded instantly.

Check out their story below!

The pair have lost 5 pounds together – that is truly amazing! Unfortunately, Peety has now crossed the rainbow bridge and will forever be remembered by Eric. Eric has reportedly saved another dog from the local shelter 6 months later, named Jacob.
