A 14-month-old golden retriever was presented with progressive right front limb lameness of 1.5 months' duration caused by a large spherical mass in the right scapula. Radiographic examination was consistent with skeletal neoplasia, showing a distinctive area of osteolytic and osteogenic activity, adjacent soft tissue invasion and metastatic lesions in the anterior lung fields. The histopathologic examination established the diagnosis of minimally productive, osteoblastic, grade III osteosarcoma. Both scapular osteosarcomas and osteosarcomas in very young dogs are rarely described; to the best of our knowledge, scapular osteosarcomas have not been described at such a young age previously.
