I just wanted to see if I could get some opinions on my dog's situation. I adopted George (track name Snake Daddy Dale) from a greyhound adoption agency a few years ago. He is currently 5 and has been diagnosed with osteosarcoma. The veterinarian said that we could amputate his leg but that the chance of his surviving for much longer after the amputation are quite slim. The cancer hasn't shown up anywhere else in his body yet, but the vet says that it probably will when they x-ray him again in 2 weeks.

I feel like 5 is quite young for a dog to have osteosarcoma from all the research that I've done. I'm really devastated, as is my family. George is the love of our lives. We don't want to imagine life without him but will take the best course of action in order to ensure that he isn't in any pain.

I was wondering if you could give me your opinion on whether or not we should try to see how he does without his leg or if we should put him to sleep? Or knew what the majority of people do in this situation?

Thank you in advance for your help.
