Dog Seen Dragging 6-Pound Tumor, But What Happened Next Is Touching
We've read more than our fair share of heartbreaking-turned-heartwarming stories about sick pups on the internet before, but Clyde's takes the cake. Clyde is a pup from Ohio. Look at him, he's a sweet doggo:
Clyde's only 1-year-old, but it's been a rough year on Earth.
About six months ago (according to vet estimates), Clyde started developing a tumor on his chest, which grew to six pounds.
The tumor was debilitating, dragging the ground, and starting to rupture. Apparently, at a loss for what to do, Clyde's owner dropped him off at the Gallatin County Animal Shelter with instructions to euthanize him, according to WLWT.
The shelter workers didn't honor the owner's wishes though.
"He's only a year ... way too young for a death sentence," Shari Wyenandt with HART Animal Rescue told WLWT.
The workers decided to take action and brought Clyde to County Animal Hospital for help. There, he underwent a two-hour surgery to remove the tumor.
Clyde is recovering from his surgery, but his tumor is being biopsied to test if he has cancer, in which case, he might need chemo. The shelter is accepting donations to cover his medical costs.
They're also confident Clyde will find a loving forever family.
"With how sweet he is, he will have no problem finding a home," Wyenandt said.
We're rooting for you, Clyde.
