"Мій собака товстий" - так, це правильний варіант, можна ще сказати "...жирний", "...дебелий", "...гладкий".

Можна вжити й трохи іншу структуру - "У мене жирний/товстий/гладкий собака/пес".

From what I gather, there's a polite way to say fat which is "thick" - the example you gave. If you just say the dog is fat without worrying about its feelings, the word is жирна.

"моя собака чюбойнкий" checks out as "my dog is chubby" on Google Translate. As I recall that's how my mom may have said it. Not positive about the grammar though.
