Rescuers and Vet Ranch extended a generous lifeline to a dog burdened by a sizable tumor on her side, offering her a remarkable chance at a renewed life. Hattie’s heartless owners callously allowed the tumor to persist for two agonizing years before finally abandoning her to a Texas shelter, where she tragically met her end.
Described by the compassionate organization Dallas Dog Rescue Rehab Reform, Hattie is considered one of the most challenging cases among owner surrenders that they have encountered.
Immediately, Hattie was rushed to Vet Ranch, where she was examined by Dr. Karri, who stated that she had never seen a tumor of Hattie’s size on a dog before. Bowling ball is how Dallas Dog RRR described the tumor.
When Hattie went to the doctor, Dr. Karri saw that she was swaying unsteadily due to the weight of the tumor. She also remarked on how Mattie would use it like a beanbag chair and lie down on it. Incredulous, right?
Before operating on Hattie, Dr. Karri was equal parts anxious and thrilled (note: the video below does not contain any graphic imagery). Hattie is a different dog now that she has recovered from surgery. By the way, the tumor weighed 15 pounds!
Hattie’s recuperation was hard, but she eventually entered foster care.
She was saved, and her saviors helped her find a loving permanent home.
Hattie was nearly put down due to the carelessness of her former owner. The story of her rescue, however, has a happy ending.
