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.
