Our Biggest Loser Challenge has begun (find out how to Enroll your pet), so let’s meet the contestants.  Each day we will post about a new contestant and then watch for updates on how they are doing over the course of the Challenge.  Feel free to post comments and words of encouragement to each of the contestants.  We will be certain to pass it along!

JoJo is a 7-year-old Chihuahua and our first Biggest Loser Challenge contestant.  She is starting at a weight of 4.3 kg (9.5 lbs) and should ideally be about 2.4 kg (5.3 lbs).

When asked by her family to describe her, they say she is a very loving dog, a wonderful companion, really she is the “perfect dog” says Brian and his wife Judy agrees, she really is the perfect dog.   She knows when we are getting ready to go out and just goes and settles in to her crate, we don’t even have to ask.  She loves to hang out with us and knows when we are packing up to go to the lake.  JoJo gets very excited about going to the lake.  Her favourite pastime is lounging on the deck to enjoy the view and watch everyone go by.

JoJo recently had surgery on her cruciate ligament and her family is hoping with the weight loss that it will help prevent any further damage to her ligaments.  They would like to see her become more active and feel better.  Judy says when she had her dental, to extract her bad teeth and clean the rest, they noticed right away an improvement in JoJo, her mouth felt better and so did all of the rest of her.  Now they would just like to see that continue with the weight loss so JoJo can continue to enjoy life.

Good luck JoJo!
