Bulldog that became viral TikTok star put down over tumour ‘eating her spine’

A dog that formed part of a trio of viral TikTokdogs has died after an aggressive cancerous tumour was discovered on her spine.

Megan had to be put down by vets earlier this week after rupturing the cruciate ligaments in her legs, leaving her unable to walk.

Owner Kate Best was hoping the dog, who was going to turn five a day later, would recover but a CT scan performed also showed that she had an aggressive tumour on her spine, Cornwall Live reports.

Ms Bevan said: “The scans we had done showed an inoperable tumour eating her spine and crushing it. The vet didn't know how she had carried on for so long.

“We are absolutely devastated but we couldn't let her suffer. There was nothing we could do. She was in so much pain, the kindest thing to do was let her go. We’re absolutely heartbroken.

“The vets at Penmellyn in Bodmin and St Columb were amazing, we’re very grateful for everything they have done for her.”

Alongside her brother, Reg, and her son, Sebastian, Megan features in a TikTok account that has more than 515,000 followers.

Posting under the name MeganReginaldSebastian, combined video views have reached more than 10.2 million.

The latest video, paying tribute to the dog, has seen an outpouring of emotion from the social media audience.

Dorf Oak posted: “Never forget Megan had the most incredible life with you.

“Take peace knowing there is nothing you could have done – my heart is broken”

And Natalee posted: “My heart hurts for you all. She will be missed TREMENDOUSLY. We’re sending our love. We’re here for you all.”

Ms Best, who opened a GoFundMe page when the dog's health issues became apparent but closed it when it reached £5,000, added: “I’m lost for words. It’s blown us away, we never suspected it to go this far. I’m struggling to keep up with everything but I want to thank everybody, it’s been amazing.”
