It seems like many in the Ark-La-Tex have been keeping an eye on Rosemary, cheering on her weight loss journey.

Rosemary the obese chihuahua has been on a crazy journey to find a home. The pudgy pooch caught the attention of the Shreveport-Bossier community because she's chasing those weight loss goals like Rocky Balboa is her life coach.

Rosemary may still be thicker than a snicker, but she's come a long way since we first found out about her.

At just 3 years of age her previous owners got her so overweight and then decided they didn't want her anymore, so they dropped her off to get euthanized at a local shelter.

Thankfully the staff at the shelter was determined to find her a home so they reached out to the Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana.

Rosemary is the heaviest chihuahua many in Rescue have ever seen. Rosemary weighed in at over 24 pounds. Keep in mind most chihuahuas weigh less than 6 pounds.

Remember when Rosemary went from 24 pounds to 17.4 pounds?
