Kale Chips, the once-obese beagle taken in by a Chicago animal rescue organization, has found his forever home.
The pup weighed in at a whopping 85 pounds when he was transferred from Chicago Animal Care & Control to One Tail at a Time in January 2015.
He was placed with a foster family who monitored his diet and gave him regular exercise, and he even inspired the "Team Kale Chips Challenge," a fitness challenge and fundraiser in which participants pledged to donate to the shelter for miles exercised.
He was deemed eligible for adoption in May 2015, but it turns out his foster family loved him so much, they decided to keep him.
The shelter posted the heartwarming update to Facebook, also revealing that the pup is down to a svelte 44 pounds.
