Home Rescue Golden Retriever Abandoned At Beach With 46-Pound Tumor Could Barely Even Walk

Golden Retriever Abandoned At Beach With 46-Pound Tumor Could Barely Even Walk

As if homeless dogs don’t already have it bad enough, this one in particular used to have a family but was abandoned at a beach in Newport, California. To make matters worse, he was carrying an extra 46 pounds around due to a tumor growing on his side.

Fortunately, a kind stranger spotted the dog, now named Henry, wandering the beach and contacted Valerie Schomburg of Newport Beach Animal Control. The NBAC rescuers were used to picking up stray dogs in bad shape, but nothing could have prepared them for what Henry looked like.

The tumor was so big that it was pushing on his right front leg in his shoulder area which was hindering him from being able to walk. He had trouble not only finding food, but also getting around.

Despite all of the difficulties that Henry had encountered in such a short period of time, he retained a zest for life. He was always happy and wagging his tail, and he adored everyone he met. Henry would slobber kisses on anyone who came close enough.

Thankfully, Schomburg was able to gather enough money, with the help of grants, for Henry to have surgery to remove the giant tumor. Despite the fact that the tumor was cancerous, it did not spread.

The surgery was a success and Henry literally had a huge weight lifted off his shoulders. He weighed 78 pounds after the tumor was removed and could finally walk around with ease. He went to live with a loving foster through the Newport Beach Animal Shelter after his surgery and happily made up for lost time.

Henry became a local celebrity after the media picked up on his story, and he now has fans from all over the world. People from all over the world sent him gifts and treats to express their gratitude for being moved by his story.

Henry died peacefully in his sleep, but he had made the most of his time on Earth and had finally felt love for the first time. His constant tail-wag and contagious smile demonstrated his boundless enthusiasm for life.

Although his passing is sad news, some good news has come out of this. They were able to locate Henry’s previous owner after conducting additional research. The OC District Attorney’s Office has charged her, and her criminal case is still pending.

  1. poor guy. i am glad he got help
    the help he needed and live a the rest of his life happy and much more healthier than he was. Rip Henry.

  2. Read the story, thanks to all who cared for Henry, my heart goes out to all who helped. I believe the NB police and criminal office should prosecute to the fullest. can you imagine, abandoning a living animal with such an issue, they most likely would abandon a child. Prosecute!!!!

  3. The person who owned this beautiful animal need s locking up poor baby can not believe some people who would leave a dog like this

  4. He's such a beautiful boy. I'm so grateful to those whom helped him through his horrible ordeal, and I pray that he finds his furever loving family. Oh, and to those that thought it was O.K. to abandon your "best friend"…shame, shame on you. I hope karma gets you in the "ass"…..

  5. I can’t understand how anyone is cruel enough to abandon a sick dog. Maybe if the owner had seen the tumor from the beginning, Henry would still be alive. SHAME ON YOU
