PHOENIX (KSAZ) - A sad update on the dog with a nine pound tumor, Myla the Boxer went into surgery Tuesday to have a giant tumor removed. It appeared the surgery went well, but Myla died a short time later.

People from around the world donated money to help Myla get the surgery. Donations even came from Ireland and Australia to help Myla get her surgery.

The rescue group who tried to save her wanted to give Myla a second chance, a chance to walk around with the growth, and a chance to find a new family.

Myla's cheerful spirit is hard to forget. Despite a massive growth and her family abandoning her, she had hope for the future.

"Myla has a growth on her, and it's going to be taken off today," said Kim Sasso with Forever Loved Pet Sancutary.

Myla this morning before her surgery looked a little nervous, but she went in with volunteers from the pet sanctuary at her side.

"I think she knows she didn't want to come in the door to the vet you know, she's the sweetest, easiest going dog ever," said Sasso.

Nervous, but brave, Myla was led to the operating room. "Whoever adopts her is going to be a lucky, lucky, family," said Sasso.

For hours, a staff of six at the veterinary hospital worked to remove the nine pound growth, it was great news at first.

"Suprisingly it came off rather easily, we're in the process of closing everything back up. With some luck she'll recover from this," said Dr. Josh Sosnow with the North Scottsdale Animal Hospital.

But a few hours later while in the recovery room her heart stopped. "She didn't make the surgery, she just didn't recover, it was heartbreaking," said Luisa Chocron.

Myla's heart stopped beating, the vet doesn't know why, he can only guess that the surgery was too much for her.

"She just loved everybody, and that is what makes it so hard, we had applications coming in to adopt her, because what was not to love about her attitude," said Chocron.

The rescue group who saved her got to spend some time with Myla after she took her last breath. Luisa Chocron couldn't help but think of another boxer named Ellie that she'd rescued and later lost to cancer.

"I just was talking to her about going to find Ellie, and to hang out with Ellie, because she would take care of her because Ellie had a really sweet spirit too," she said.

The group who rescued Myla wonders what would have happened if her owners had taken her to the vet six months ago. They say there are vets and charity groups who help families pay for pet surgeries. The money donated for Myla's surgery will be used to help other dogs like her.
