Vets were stunned when they found a melon-sized tumour inside a small dog in Leicester.
Jessie, a nine-year-old Jack Russell underwent surgery after the growth caused her abdomen to swell.
The dog's owner, Mandy Cracknell, 44, took Jessie into the vets where she had an ultrasound scan and X-rays which revealed a non-cancerous tumour.
The tumour weighed more than 20% of the dog's weight at 1.6kg. The vet who performed the operation to remove the growth from the dog's ovaries said he was surprised to find a tumour so big in such a small dog, though he added he had removed tumours as big as basketballs previously in larger dogs.

Stanley the 10-month-old cocker spaniel puppy is the youngest known dog to undergo a full hip replacement in the UK.
Vet Stephanie Tickale, based in Birmingham, found when he was aged just 5 and a half months old that he was suffering from a rare condition which meant his hip joints were slowly disintegrating, leaving him unable to walk and in a tremendous amount of pain.
Stanley underwent the successful operation and now is free from pain and not on any medication.
The puppy is also looking for a new home as his previous owners had to give him up due to a change in circumstances.
Ray Dedicoat from Hollytrees Animal Rescue Trust where Stanley is living described him as "the funniest dog we have had in, in a long time" he added that Stanley has an unusual habit of trying to sit on people's shoulders.
Anyone who wishes to offer Stanley a home should contact Hollytrees Animal Rescue Trust.
At just fine and a half months old, Stanley a cocker spaniel from Birmingham is the youngest puppy to undergo a full hip replacement.
When his owners noticed he was limping they took him to Maypole Veterinary Clinic where vet Stephanie Tickale advised he had an x-ray.
The vet discovered Stanley had Legg-Calve-Perthes disease. A rare degenerative disorder which causes hip joints to disintegrate.
Usually a hip replacement would not be carried out until a puppy is fully grown but as vet Stephanie Tickale explains, Stanley was in too much pain to wait.
