On 20 July 2022, some DAS supporters bought in 4 tiny new-born puppies whose mother had died during shortly after delivering them. The mother had hidden them well, and it took days to find them, by which time they were in a very poor state of health, with lots of maggots and almost no strength left.
Just one survived the first day, and we called her Tyler. She had round the clock attention, and looked to be getting stronger, but but sadly we couldn't save him and he passed away on 25 July 2022. She stopped eating and developed a discoloration of her skin under her hind legs. She passed away around 4pm with Rina holding her.
Doc Pierre believes it was sepsis, an overwhelming of her system by infection. Young puppies who are without mothers milk do not have developed immune systems to fight off bacteria and other pathogens. She was just too young to survive.
Run free little Tyler and know that you were very much loved in the short time you were with us.
