Small Dog with Enormous Tumor and Surrendered for Euthanasia has the Best Life Now

 Her heartless owners had let the tumor grow for 2 years before dumping her at the shelter. But just look at her now!

A dog who had a big tumor on her side features a whole new life now because of her dedicated rescuers and Vet Ranch. Hattie had been surrendered to a Texas shelter for euthanasia by her heartless owners, who had let the tumor grow for two years without doing anything.

She came to the eye of Dallas Dog Rescue Rehab Reform who described Hattie as “may be the worst owner surrender we've taken in.”

Hattie was immediately taken to Vet Ranch’s Dr. Karri, who remarked that she had never seen a tumor that enormous on a dog Hattie’s size before. Dallas Dog RRR likened the tumor to a bowling ball!

Dr. Karri noted how off balance Hattie was due to the tumor weighing her down. She also noted how Mattie would lay thereon love it was a beanbag chair! are you able to imagine?

Dr. Karri was both nervous and excited before Hattie’s surgery (note: the video below does not contain any graphic imagery). After her surgery, Hattie is sort of a fresh dog! The tumor, by the way, was 15 pounds!

Hattie’s recovery wasn’t without a couple of setbacks but she got through them and went into care .

And she went on to seek out an exquisite forever home because of her rescuers!

To think, Hattie was almost euthanized due to her previous owner’s neglect. But thankfully, her rescue features a happy ending!
