12/19/20 It is with a heavy heart I inform you one of our alumni has crossed over the rainbow bridge. Naples was a unique little guy. He was only 6 lbs but he had the courage of a lion. He came to us in rough shape. His teeth were so rotten, he struggled to eat and he had eye infections causing him pain. He was a little fear biter and we can only speculate how he got to be that way. In the time he spent with us, he was cared for and taken out of pain. He ended up with yorkie brothers and a happy loving home. He was learning to trust and he had a mom that loved him fiercely and worked through his issues. Unfortunately Naples became distressed and had some difficulty breathing. He was rushed in and they thought perhaps he had bronchitis and part of his treatment was spending a few hours in oxygen. Last night he seemed much better but started having breathing issues again in the night. His mom gave him mouth to mouth but in the end, little Naples didn’t make it. We are extremely sad to hear this. This little fighter had a ton of spirit and none of us could have expected this. In the end, I know he was loved in the last 6 months and cared for immensely. I am grateful for the time he had but saddened for his loss and for his family. Rest in Peace Naples. We won’t forget you little squirrel.
