Christine found Ariel on 18 August 2021 abandoned in Bacong Cemetery. She had a lump on her side, and was very weak.
That week, the Sanctuary took in 9 puppies in all, and not long after, a very sick dog called Arwen.
We believe poor Arwen bought Distemper into the Sanctuary once again, as we lost Josie to the virus last week. Little Ariel must have been exposed, and she fought hard for some days before passing away in the night of Friday 17 September 2021.
We are so sorry that this little life was cut short, but we gave her a chance at living, when others had simply abandoned her to die. You can learn more about Distemper here.
