Rest in peace little pup

At the pound
Sharing a cage with two puppies that had tested positive for distemper.

This little Klang Pound pup died of distemper recently at the clinic where we had admitted it. The puppy had tested negative on the day it was brought to us but tested positive several days later. We believe that it had been infected by other puppies on the day it was rescued. This is an example of how deadly the distemper virus can be. Given this - we have to be careful when rescuing the pound puppies by separating those taken from within the enclosures with those from outside the enclosures. We have received three more puppies and they are all infected with parvo and corona virus. We hope they pull through.
