This Obese Beagle Will Do Anything For Beef Jerky

That dog is a P-I-G.

You’ve heard of fat cats, but what about obese beagles?

Yes, dogs can pack on the pounds, especially Fletcher, a beagle who is a real pig (if you catch our drift).

As can be seen in this clip from the Animal Planet series, “My Big Fat Pet Makeover,” Fletcher is such a hound for beef jerky that he has found a way to open his owner’s zipped backpack to get his fix.

Pet expert and trainer Travis Brorsen is impressed by the dog’s mad scarfing skills, but tries to save the pound-foolish pooch from itself.

“My Big Fat Pet Makeover” debuts Saturday night.
