'American Stuffers': Team Discovers A Yorkshire Terrier Wasn't Pregnant, But Had Cancer (VIDEO)

Daniel Ross, owner of Xtreme Taxidermy and the star of "American Stuffers" (Thurs., 10 p.m. EST on Animal) knows his way around a dead animal, and so he took charge when the team were preparing a deceased Yorkshire Terrier for stuffing.

The owners had said the dog died giving birth, so Daniel warned his staff that it would contain "fully developed, fully grown babies." As he cut into the cadaver, the amount of gagging, grimacing and "ewwwws" from Dixie and Joseph suggested that they may want to consider taking a different career path.

Something was amiss, however, and as a confused Daniel asked, "Is this the right dog?" Joseph declared,"I'm gonna puke!" and had to flee outside to get some fresh air.

Daniel and Dixie examined the Yorkie thoroughly and they realized that she couldn't have died giving birth because she wasn't pregnant. However, Dixie did spot an odd-looking tumor on its intestine. Is that what killed the precious pet?

"I'm not a vet yet," said Dixie, "But I'm pretty sure this dog died of cancer."

"American Stuffers" airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. EST on Animal.
