ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

Miss Butterworth, a formerly obese rescue pup taken in by the Asheville Humane Society, has found her forever home. 

She has been on quite the journey to find her new family. Miss Butterworth lost several pounds and underwent surgery to remove a tumor. 

Miss Butterworth weighed 20.2 pounds when she first came to the shelter. She was classified as morbidly obese.

At her last weigh-in, Miss Butterworth was 12 pounds. 

Then, during a routine check up, a staff member noticed a tumor on Miss Butterworth's elbow. She underwent surgery and is now cancer free. 

Miss Butterworth joined her new family on Tuesday.
