Exclamation URGENT: 1 year old puppy, vomiting, 105 fever, mass next to liver, swelled chest, etc

So I'm out of state right now, my mom has been giving me updates on our one year old puppy, Scout. Earlier this week he vomited white foam in the back yard but we thought it was out other dog. I noticed his chest getting bigger, I thought he was finally filling out but we now know that is not the case and it's a swelling of some sorts. Today my mom took him to the emergency clinic, he puked 5 times in 20 minutes this morning and had a high fever of 105. We thought it was kennel cough because he kept dry coughing every once in a while the past week or two, then after he puked we thought it was a flu outbreak in LA but the vet said there was no reported cases of it happening in the San Bernardino area and we hadn't gone to LA recently. They did an xray to see if he possibly ate something and they found a strange mass by his liver and his lungs looked strange. My mom called the breeder and asked her about it, she said Scout's grandparents are perfectly healthy and still living today at the age of 15. So it doesn't really make sense. She also said that when she had Scout she did notice he was pretty thin and long, but shes had skinny dogs before so she didn't think anything of it. A year later he still hasn't filled out, we feed him 6 cups a day and it's like he doesn't gain any weight. He's 75lbs right now and a big boy but I'm concerned. He's getting an MRI right now but the doctors have no clue what's going on. Has anyone had anything like this happen to their young dog?? Any guesses/insight? Thank you so much in advance.

Radiologist determined it was a bad case of pneumonia and thinks the tumor mass is benign, phew! Will have it removed when he's healthy

Yep, that sounds scary and strange. Please update us, because information like this can help others, hopefully in this case to be calm and hopefully all will be ok.

I have a big boy who is 4 and 75 pounds. He needs to gain some weight. It's downright irritating at times (when I am throwing away food he didn't eat). I have his mother, and she is almost 12, but that doesn't mean he can't have something or other that will take him sooner.

Glad that it seems yours is ok.
