The tumour was located in the right caudo-abdominal mammary gland, and was 6 × 8 × 4 cm in size, weighed 200 g and was very firm to the touch. Microscopically, a well differentiated chondrosarcoma, rarely observed in canine mammary gland tumours, was diagnosed.Keywords:chondrosarcoma; mammary gland; dog
