These days Brooke Burton has a hard time keeping up with Dennis, her 6-year old Dachshund, who loves taking walks and chasing tennis balls. It's hard to believe that this rambunctious 13-lb. pooch is the same obese pet she discovered in 2013 at the home of an elderly relative.

"My great-uncle was a hoarder, and I went over there to help clean his house," Burton tells PEOPLE. "Then I saw this thing coming toward me like a slug. He would take a few steps and then have to rest."

Burton, 27, took Dennis – who weighed 56 lbs. thanks to a diet of fast food burgers, pizza and frozen dinners – back to her Columbus, Ohio, home, effectively saving his life.

Adopt Me! George the Albino Doberman Is a Social Butterfly

Originally posted 01/16/2015 11:00 AM

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet George, an albino Doberman pinscher currently being fostered through the OK Save a Dog Society of Prague, Oklahoma.

Because of his genetic condition, this 2-year-old needs special care from his next owner. In the summer, he's in danger of getting a sunburn and in the winter, he's in danger of freezing.

He has beautiful blue eyes that need special protection from the sun (he'd be grateful if his next owner bought him some doggy sunglasses). Though people spend extra time tending to his skin, he's unfazed. George is a "gentle giant," says the rescue's founder Kim Bowers, "who needs a buddy to play with."

The utter confusion on the pup's face is pee-the-tree HILARIOUS! He just makes us want to cuddle him and tell him it's ok, sound CAN be weird like that.

Meet the Today Show's New (ADORABLE) Guide Dog in Training

Originally posted 01/14/2015 12:40 PM

The Today show rolled out the red carpet – and fire hydrants! – on Wednesday, in honor of a special new cohost.

Guiding Eyes for the Blind has temporarily given the morning show a 10-week-old yellow Labrador retriever puppy to train as a guide dog.

"This is a really great experience both for Guiding Eyes and for the puppy," said Saxon Eastman, a trainer for the non-profit organization, who gives guide dogs free of charge to individuals who are blind or visually impaired.

"This is going to be an awesome socialization experience for him. That's really what we're looking for, to put him on the right track to being a guide dog someday."
