It’s hard to believe that there’s anyone out there who would welcome an animal into their home only to abandon it in their moment of most desperate need, but unfortunately, that’s exactly happened to one beautiful 8-year-old Golden Retriever.
This poor dog was abandoned to die on the beaches of California, and when a group of rescuers first laid eyes on him, they couldn’t believe what they were seeing. The poor dog had a 46 pound tumor jutting out of his side; in fact, the tumor was so hindering that the poor guy couldn’t even lift his leg up to pee. It sapped his strength, and what should have been a joyous time in this dog’s life was filled with pain, uncertainty, fear, but worst of all now, loneliness.
The rescuers weren’t very hopeful, but they named him Henry and took him to a clinic. After an intense and expensive surgery, this dog literally has had a huge burden freed from his back and from his spirit. He has limitless energy to play and is now living every moment of his life to the very fullest! Thank goodness for the donations for this dog’s surgery, because health and medical insurance were not going to be able to cover his life-changing procedure!
While a study is being done on the huge tumor to ensure that he’s cancer free, Henry is on the lookout for a loving home filled with humans who won’t abandon him. Meanwhile, the search for the people who left him behind has begun.
