It's still not clear what caused the huge lump. But what we do know is that this frankly unbelievable growth led her previous owners to abandon her, unable to afford her medical care.Last month, Meesha met Liz Gigler, vet and director of the NGO Rescued Pets Are Wonderful, at a dog shelter. From then on, the young woman decided she woulddo everything she could to help the dog out.
The vet started by placing Meesha under her care in her organisation's rescue centre. She was expecting that she would be bringing home a suffering, depressed dog, but realised to her surprise that Meesha was enthusiastic, sociable (even amongst cats!) and very happy on the whole.
To be quite honest, she's the happiest dog I know. She's always got a smile on her face!
It'sonly whenMeesha tries to lie on her right side that her spirits start to dampen, since this presses down on the huge lump. But for Liz, the dog's health is the main concern.Meesha has gone through a series of medical examinations so that Liz could try and better understand what could have caused such a huge swelling. But the dog shows no signs of health problems other than the lump.
