One of five puppies dumped in a road in a bag (one escaped only to be killed by a vehicle), Dottie didn't have the best start in life. Within days of arriving at the Sanctuary on 27 April 2021, she stopped eating and became listless, and after a series of tests, an acute bacterial infection was diagnosed.
She eventually recovered, but it was only a short time before she tested positive for Distemper during the outbreak in May - July 2021. Coming so soon after such a life-threatening condition, her weakened system could not cope, and she passed away on 19 May 2021.
Her few short months have moments of happiness and contentment, and it is with great sadness we say goodbye to her.
