In May, Sherri Haughton, a person living in California, took a Golden Retriever to a local animal shelter, saying that the dog was found alone on a beach in Newport California.

Valerie Schomburg, the animal control officer and the staff at the Newport Beach Animal Shelter quickly understood that there was a 46-pound tumor in the dog’s side, which was noticeable by his protruding belly. Since they had no idea who the owner is, they thought that maybe the owner left him alone due to the tumor. They named him Henry, and immediately prepared him for surgery. The tumor was almost half of the dog’s weight, which rendered the dog unable to walk.
