Facts about Laney Lou

  • Breed: Beagle
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 11393697-16-0722
Laney Lou is about 10 years old and on July 28th, had a 1 POUND mammary tumor removed from her abdomen. The tumor was about as big as a grapefruit and hung between her legs, making it difficult for her to walk, sit, and properly urinate. The tumor came back as mid-high grade cancer. Her X-rays don't show any visible signs the cancer has spread, however we do not know how long she has had the mass or whether it was fast or slow growing. This type of cancer can spread to other organs or lymph nodes. She is not being given any chemo or radiation at this time. In December she had another small mass in one of her anal glands and we had that removed. She recovered nicely with no complications.


I am a firm believer in fighting cancer through diet and have made the decision to provide her with a grain free diet and am putting her on supplements recommended in a book called the Dog Cancer Survival Guide. She also gets grain free treats because this will help slow down the cancer. if you would like to donate towards Laney's rather costly food and supplements, you can send a donation to Shelter to Home, Attention Laney Lou. 266 Oak Street, Wyandotte, MI 48192. If you donate using Paypal, please be sure to put a memo that the donation is for Laney Lou. Thank you!


Laney is great with other dogs and cats. She weighs about 23 pounds. She is crated when we aren't home but at night sleeps in bed. She fusses for a few minutes when crated but has not had any accidents in her crate. She's not 100% housebroken but she gets the general idea. She needs to be asked to go outside and often takes a while to finish her business. She's not a fan of wet grass or going out in the rain.


She is an absolute doll...and did not deserve to have her life cut short because of a tumor her previous owners failed to deal with. The surgery cost Shelter to Home over $1,320 and we believe Laney Lou is worth every penny. We hope there is a home out there for her that is knowledgeable and understanding about mammary tumors and can provide her with the things I believe will provide her with as much time as possible.


Laney Lou has been Heartworm tested, spayed, given flea treatment, and vaccines. She is on monthly heartworm prevention. If you are interested in Laney Lou or have questions, please contact me at Beagmom1@yahoo.com. Laney Lou's adoption fee is $250. A home visit will be required prior to approval to adopt Laney Lou. A fenced yard is also required since Laney is older and seems to be starting to lose her hearing.
