When Wallace the pit bull was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma — a type of cancer almost exclusive to dogs and cats — he was given two weeks to three months without chemotherapy. However, this amazing dog lived beyond that diagnosis and made it through to his 11th birthday!

In the video above, watch as Wallace’s human dad celebrates the pit bull’s 11th birthday in style — with a dog bone-shaped, chocolate cake and a box full of surprises given from people all over the country who loves Wallace.

It is sad to note that Wallace passed away a  year after his diagnosis, but you can support pit bulls in need — like Wallace — by purchasing Wallace the pit bull’s book here.

This energetic and happy dog will always be in our hearts. Watch Wallace’s tail-wagging surprise as he gets treated to some yummy cake and lots and lots of toys!
