A Heartbreaking Tale of a Stray Puppy with a Facial Tumor Bullied by Onlookers

The story of a group’s heroic rescue
Brady endured terrible mistreatment from the neighborhood kids, who used him as a prop for their rough play. He was subjected to constant beatings, kicks, and even stones thrown at him, leaving his frail body covered in countless bruises. Unfortunately, this abuse ultimately resulted in a large tumor that continues to engulf his face with each passing day.


At a mere 10 pounds heavier, poor Brady spends his time carrying around a tumor that adds to the already small size of his body. Every day, he is forced to walk the streets and endure the ridicule and contempt of people who view him as just another unwanted and neglected stray.


At the moment, the tumor has started to invade his eye socket, making it necessary for him to undergo numerous tests and a delicate surgical procedure. Due to his vulnerability, a prolonged surgery requiring anesthesia may not be feasible. However, he requires extensive care and treatment to regain his strength, and depending on the outcome of the removal, additional chemotherapy may be necessary. Despite his condition, Brady is managing well. He eats from the correct side of his mouth and has a good appetite. This little guy has a strong will to live, as evidenced by his energetic and tail-wagging demeanor. His estimated age is under one year old.

Regrettably, the growth on Brady’s face is suspected to be cancerous due to its size of approximately 10-12 centimeters (4-5 inches) and its hard texture. Additionally, he is suffering from severe malnourishment. Despite this, Brady’s mood is stable and he no longer feels hungry or cold. He is also accompanied by someone now. The animal hospital will open soon, and we plan on scheduling Brady for X-rays and a biopsy. Please keep him in your prayers.

Update: The mass weighing 5 pounds on Brady’s face has been successfully removed, and he is currently being kept warm in an incubator bed with hourly check-ups from the staff. He is receiving IV fluids and several medications, and is expected to stay in the hospital for at least five more nights.

As a community, it is our duty to establish a nurturing and supportive atmosphere for our furry friends. This includes showing compassion towards abandoned animals, ensuring they receive the medical attention they require, and promoting responsible pet ownership as well as adoption.

The story presented here highlights the importance of empathy and the obligation we hold in advocating for those who cannot express themselves. Even small acts of kindness can have a significant impact on the lives of animals in distress.

Let us take this tale as an inspiration to be the voice for animals and work towards a world where they are treated with care, respect, and affection. By standing up against mistreatment and harassment, we can build a more secure and compassionate environment for all living creatures, providing them with the hope and support they deserve.
