With a tumor the size of a melon, the dachshund could no longer walk or lie down normally. Her family did not want to fight, preferring to get rid of the “defective” pet. The owners of a tenyearold dachshundnamed Boo-Boo sent her to a clinic for euthanasia.
It was painful to look at the animal: a tumor had grown on the dog’s stomach, reaching a third of its body in size! There were only a few days left before the death of the pet, but his photo caught the eye of the owner of anothe place intime, animal shelter in San Francisco. Sherry Franklin – that was the name of this kind woman – decided to intervene in the fate of the unfortunate baby. She examined the dachshund and offered to examine the tumor and, if it turned out to be benign, remove it from a veterinarian friend.
