San Antonio animal care officials say an obese Doberman taken in last week is being transferred to Conroe for further care.
A spokeswoman for the city's Animal Care Services said Wednesday that the dog named Bear weighs in at 147 pounds. That's twice the size of an average Doberman.
Caregivers say he looks miserable and is possibly depressed.
A Doberman rescue organization took in the dog Friday morning near Fort Worth. He has a microchip, but the chip isn't registered.
They have Bear on joint supplement and thyroid medication. He's also dealing with high cholesterol.
The spokeswoman says caregivers will start by taking Bear "on some very short walks." She says he will be fed four small meals a day of premium food.
The dog's goal weight is 80 pounds.
