Arbuckle was 60 pounds overweight, depressed and couldn’t even take short walks — but now that’s all melting away.
When rescuers found him abandoned in a field it was heartbreaking to see. Arbuckle should have weighted 50 pounds, but weighed an astounding 116 pounds. He couldn’t walk on his own so A Purposeful Rescue used a trolley and lift support harnesses to move him around.
Laura, Arbuckle’s foster mom, saw a picture of him and immediately wanted to help. The first few days, he didn’t know what was going on but he soon became a lovebug and didn’t complain about the exercise regime and diet he was put on.
The more pounds he lost, the happier he became.
And that’s not all. He soon would get the most wonderful forever family. Arbuckle was adopted by Jane Lynch and her partner, Jennifer.
Just before thanksgiving we received a plea for our friend Arbuckle…most of you know the state was in, but that is definitely the past…because now he is home, forever, with his amazing new pack. I couldn’t have asked for a better family to adopt him. His transition was so loving, and I have been able to visit him twice already!! I was so blessed to be his foster mom 🙋🏼♀️ Stay tuned here for his continuing journey…a new chapter just started!! 💗 #arbucklethemagicalunicorn🦄 #blessyourbody Repost from @apurposefulrescue using @RepostRegramApp – When we rescued @allaboutarbuckle we had no idea what we were in store for. We couldn’t believe our eyes when we first saw him after he had been abandoned in a field alone near Tulare, CA. We weren’t weren’t even sure he would survive because of the horrible state he was in. Well. As we all know now he has not only survived but he’s thriving. A true gladiator! He’s a force to be reckoned with! With the help of his angel Foster Mama, Laura (she’s a damn saint), he overcame all the obstacles in his way. We are here today to report that our big big is home! Home with @janelynchofficial and @jennifercheyne7 and their pack of #magicalunicornalum where he will be loved and cherished and will receive all he could ever hope and dream of having. A true fairy tale life for this special unicorn. We are over the moon. Huge thanks to Dr @jennifer.cola for going above and beyond for him and to all his fans who have rallied behind him. Don’t worry. His account will be active! We will all be following his transformation right along with you. Happy Monday. #dreamscometrue
Now Arbuckle lives like a king!
He continues to lose weight.
He enjoys trips to the dog park.

“I dreamed I weighed 99 pounds and that over 800 of the bestest people in the world were happy for me.” It’s no dream, sweetheart. THANK YOU to everyone! Seeing who guessed closest right now! 😊♥️♥️♥️♥️ —- Aaaand about 10 people guessed 99.1 so Arby will be a busy boy! I’ll DM the 99.1s for your address. 🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾
And spending time with his new family.
Although Arbuckle still needs to lose some more weight, he finally knows what love feels like.
