Sweet Puppy Dragging 6-pound Tumor And Dumped At Shelter To Be Put Down Gets A Second Chance

Clyde the dog is only 1 year old, but he was dumped at a shelter to be euthanized because he was dragging around a 6 pound tumor. Thankfully, the sweet puppy with a “heart of gold” has a second chance thanks to strangers.

Clyde was abandoned at the Gallatin County Animal Shelter in Sparta, Kentucky by his former owner who told the stunned staff to euthanize the young dog.

“He’s only a year … way too young for a death sentence,” Shari Wyenandt with HART Animal Rescue said. “Literally dropped off, instructed to euthanize, then he turned away, turned around and walked away.”

Clyde’s tumor didn’t appear overnight. In fact, veterinarians believe the tumor has been growing for at least 6 months – that’s half of his life.

HART Animal Rescue out of Cincinnatti, Ohio, answered the call and soon Clyde was at the Mason County Animal Hospital and undergoing surgery to remove the tumor.

As Clyde’s neglectful owner hadn’t even bothered naming him, the rescue gave him the name “Clyde”.

Clyde is now resting comfortably after his surgery and will find himself 6.4 pounds lighter! The tumor is currently getting a biopsy done so that everyone will know what they are dealing with in terms of his recovery, but one thing for sure, Clyde is finally in caring hands.
