Lorax (the dog) Needs a Happily-Ever-After

Lorax earned his name because of an uncanny resemblance to the Dr. Seuss character.  His silly face and ultra-relaxed disposition makes everyone smile, it's hard for people not to giggle when they meet Lorax.  All joking aside though, Lorax came to us as a senior dog with a massive tumor on his shoulder.  Other old dog issues like arthritis and cloudy eyes were the least of our worries, this beast of a tumor needed to be removed and checked for cancer.  A specialty surgeon was called in for the task, delicately removing the tumor and sending it to the lab for biopsy.  Everyone breathed a sigh of relief when the results came back - no cancer!  Just a big 'ol nasty benign tumor that his previous owner ignored while it grew and grew and then maybe that's why he was dumped at the shelter.  Thanks to Wags & Walks taking a chance on a dog with huge tumor, now Lorax has a second opportunity to live many more wonderful years in a deserving forever home.
