Senior Dog With Massive Leg Tumor Now Acts Like A Puppy After Getting Surgery !!!

Did you know that most veterinarians consider dogs aged 7 or older as senior dogs? But dogs as young as 5 have a hard time getting adopted if they are in a shelter, according to the Senior Dog Project.

So even if you think 5 is still basically a puppy, when someone is at the shelter, they are going to adopt an actual puppy first.

Because of this, many older dogs spend a long time in shelters. Dogs that are 9 to 12 are practically ancient in shelter ages. Approximately 2.7 million animals are euthanized every year in shelters, according to the ASPCA.

When Bandit was dumped at a shelter by his family, it was for the sole purpose of him being euthanized. He had a massive tumor on one of his legs and they did not want to deal with it.

Being a super senior dog at a shelter, with a tumor, things looked very grim for Bandit. But when Howl of a Dog, a nonprofit organization, heard about Bandit’s story, they swooped in to save the day.

They got Bandit the life-changing surgery he needed to remove the tumor. Once he’d been all cleared up by the vet, Bandit was a brand-new dog! He enjoys rolling around on the ground and playing like a puppy. You can see his incredible transformation in the video below!
