Bubbles the dog with massive tumor now raring to play

Bubbles, the Neapolitan Mastiff abandoned by an irresponsible owner in Baltimore in November with a nine-pound tumor on his face, recovery has been nothing short of a miracle.

Monday morning, Noah's Arks Rescue update on Bubble's condition finds her playful and finally able to hold her head erect. Imagine the dog's chagrin when she no longer has to maneuver her head in juxtaposition to be able to drink water out of her dog bowl. What an unusual treat to just lower her head into the bowl and quench her thirst.

On Tuesday, her veterinarians plan to remove some of her stitches, although not the ones from her eye yet. A stubborn infection of E-Coli and Enterococcus have her on antibiotics and IV fluids, and may delay having her stitches removed, but aside from not being able to run around with other dogs yet, Bubbles enthusiasm for life continues to develop.

Her medical team is still optimistic they may be able to save some of her eyesight in her left eye although her vision in her left eye has been completely restored.

From Jennifer Smith, president of Noah's Arks Rescue came these heartwarming sentiments:

"Bubbles is a true Miracle of what is possible when you believe the Impossible is Possible. I have my own reference that I use for every animal that I rescue. It is something I realized years ago after saving so many animals that the rest of the World gave up on. At the Intersection of Courage and Mercy is HOPE. Courage has to come from the animals WILL to Live and Mercy has to come from the COURAGE it takes to know when it is not there. In between those two critical points you will find HOPE."

Meanwhile this extremely happy dog continues to gain weight, and if all goes as plans will begin chemotherapy treatment in six weeks.

We look forward to watching Bubbles play ball in the yard in the near future, and thank everyone who has made this miracle possible.
