PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -
The fate of Obie the obese dachshund has been settled outside of a Washington County courtroom.
The dog will stay with foster parent Nora Vanatta, after she reached a settlement with Oregon Dachshund Rescue.
Other details will not be released, as part of the terms of the settlement, according to a post on the Facebook page Vanatta maintains for Obie.
Vanatta took Obie in last August, after seeing an ODR post seeking a foster home for the then-77 pound dog. The rescue group was seeking a home on behalf of his previous owners, an elderly couple.
Vanatta, a former vet technician, put the dog on a diet and began documenting his weight loss journey. Obie's story went viral, with FOX 12 and national media outlets airing reports. Thousands of dollars in donations poured in to a PayPal account for Obie.
"I did not know I was adopting a famous dog," Vanatta said.
