Two chubby San Francisco weight-loss dogs are looking for a new home
Deep Dish and Jambalaya are a pair of senior dogs in San Francisco who are looking for a new forever home.
The two came to San Francisco-based Muttville Senior Dog Rescue from Sonoma County Animal Services after their original caretaker fell ill and could no longer care for them.
“Together they are so friendly and loving. They get along great with other dogs and children,” Muttville told Fox News Digital.

The puppies are “strongly bonded” and the shelter does not want to separate them.
Nine-year-old Deep Dish, a male Chihuahua mix, is “a very good boy who gets along well with other dogs.”
Jambalaya, 10 years old, is a female Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen. Although visually impaired, she “loves it when you’re around her,” Muttville says.
Both dogs, however, are on a weight loss journey, according to the shelter.
Deep Dish weighs in at 32 pounds, while Jambalaya tips the scales at 37 pounds.
“Deep Dish is an amazing Chihuahua potato,” Muttville said. “He’s a happy little guy who wags his tail a lot and is easy to handle, but not so easy to grab.”

Jambalaya, meanwhile, is “a total sweetheart,” her adoptive mother told the shelter.
She “came to us looking rather scrappy and scruffy, but she cleaned up really well!”
