RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Richmond Animal Care and Control removed a large mass from a dog’s hip after it was taken in as a stray.

The dog, a female, has been named 1 Hip, 2 Hip because of the unwanted addition, which weighed 7.6 pounds.

RACC commented on its Facebook page that the mass could be cancerous, but hasn’t confirmed that.

The shelter turned the moment into something positive by offering an RACC tote bag to a commenter who could correctly guess the weight of the mass.

RACC said the mass is the largest they have been able to successfully remove.

The shelter said the dog is doing well after the surgery.

We have a winner! Or 2! The mass weighed 7.6 lbs! Pm us a screen shot of your guess if you said 7.6 and send us your...
