Owner surrendered ‘Big Head’ with huge mass on her neck New Year’s Eve

Happy New Year “Big Head.” Sadly, that was the loyalty “reward” a six-year-old golden retriever was given by her family as a mass continued to grow on the back of her neck. And on New Year’s Eve, Big Head’s fate was to be sealed as she was surrendered to Carson Animal Care.

Saving Carson Shelter Dogs immediately went to work; first call of the afternoon was to rename her “Lucy.”

“They named her Big Head and let this mass on her neck grow to the point where she seems so uncomfortable and then they left her at the Shelter on New Year’s Eve.”



#A5343940 “My name is LUCY (BIG_HEAD), and I’m an approximately 6 year old female Golden Retriever. I am not yet spayed. I have been at the Carson Animal Care Center since 12/31. I will be available on 12/31. You can visit me at my temporary home at C103. My former family who owned me for more than a year had to give me up because they just weren’t up for the responsibility of a pet. But they said that I spend time indoors and outdoors. I seem to be good with small children. I am housetrained. I seem to get along well with dogs.”
