A Siberian Husky named Neo with a seven pound tumor is recovering after a life-saving surgery to remove it.
Neo was given to the Anderson County Humane Society on September 14th, because they were better equipped to handle the situation.
After being turned away by numerous veterinarians, some suggesting to euthanize the dog, Dr. Bobby Long of the Magnolia Animal Hospital performed the surgery.
The husky was up walking, eating, and drinking after the 26-inch growth was removed. The Humane Society says Neo is now doing well in recovery.
He was set to return home Thursday afternoon.
