Wilbur has a good life now.
He lives at a dog day care
in Vancouver.
The day care is called
Canine Adventure Den.

His owner, Kirsty MacGregor,
found Wilbur on the Internet.
Wilbur lived in Edmonton, Alberta.
He was sick, small and weak.
Wilbur weighed only eight kilograms (kg).

Today he weighs 34 kg.
