This Abandoned Dog With A 46 Pound Tumor Was Left To Die On Newport Beach, Until...

They say a dog's life is either the best life in the world or the worst life in the world. If a dog gets adopted by a loving family, they get to enjoy the best pleasures of life like love, care, no homework, no bills to pay, and what not! But if they have to spend their life on streets, worse, injured, they probably have the worst life filled with humiliation, left to die

One such golden retriever named Henry was discovered on the Newport beach on May 12, with a huge swelling mass on his right side. The Newport Beach Animal Control rescued the dog and took him to vets to take care of Henry's weird tumour growing in the right portion of his body.

"Most vets that we've asked, and have been involved in his story, have never seen it that big," says Schomburg.

After the surgery on Thursday, Henry is on the road for improvement and he's showing great signs of health already. The surgery costs thousands of dollars and the expense was taken care by donations.

"You can't keep him down."

The officials believe that Henry was someone's pet that they'll take the right decision if the case turns to be that of animal cruelty.
