(September 25, 2015) – You may remember Sheridan – an Indiana dog who received national attention over the last year!
In July 2013, Sheridan was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, an extremely aggressive bone tumor. In order to slow down the spreading of the cancer and reduce his pain, Sheridan’s right forelimb was amputated.
His owners, veterinary students Morgan and Zach, created an emotional video following the life of Sheridan before and after his amputation. Even while enduring chemotherapy for six months, Sheridan continued to act like his energetic self, rolling around in the sand, jumping into pools and chasing tennis balls.
The video went viral, and Morgan and Zach used this opportunity as a platform to talk about Bone Cancer Dogs, a non-profit organization that works to exclusively to fund research for canine bone cancer.
Sadly, Sheridan passed away on Thursday, September 17.
Sheridan lived to be 8-years old, and amputation and chemotherapy extended his life for 14 months after diagnosis.
Morgan and Zach say they miss him dearly and hope his story continues to inspire others.
After 14 months of chemotherapy and an amputation, Sheridan the dog passed away from bone cancer.
His owners created a tear-jerking video of his final days.
