Sadly poor Cleo was put to sleep away on Monday the 4th April. It was a shock to us all, as she only became ill on Sunday. Thankfully she had a very short illness, but investigative surgery showed she had liver and spleen tumours. Allowing her to pass with dignity and comfort was the only option.
Although she spent a long time with us looking for a forever home, she was very comfortable and thoroughly loved here – this was her home. Dogs Trust was the only place she had ever found where she was able to be herself – a free spirit! She is terribly missed not only by the staff but also be her young kennel mate, Zippy.
