The road to health has not been easy for Shiloh the black Labrador – but thankfully, he has a loving family to help him put one paw in front of the other.

Heidi Fiore first saw an adoption ad for Shiloh on Facebook which described the plump pup as “a tad overweight”. Though he officially weighed in at 146 pounds, the Fiores knew they could assist him to become healthier.

They adopted Shiloh in October and started him on a healthy diet and exercise regiment.

When they first began the routine, Shiloh could barely walk down his street without plopping down on the pavement.

As the days went on, however, the Lab would make it a little bit further every time.

Now, he walks two miles every day and weighs 80 pounds – which is a healthy, average weight for his species. In total, Shiloh lost 60 pounds in 11 months.

While it was no small feat for the hound, he did have 2,000 Facebook fans cheering him on the whole way.
