Small Dog Rescue in Princeton NJ is under mandatory quarantine for having
tested positive to active canine influenza. People and dogs should avoid
direct contact with the Small Dog Shelter in Princeton New Jersey
It can be spread from dog to dog, people to dog through clothing etc.

Highly contagious with high mortality rate. The quarantine was not self
imposed but mandated by the state, and local government. If anyone knows
of anyone that has visited Small Dog Rescue recently they should watch their
dogs for symptoms.

This is a very serious problem and needs to be brought out into the open.

PLEASE help spread this news to anyone & everyone.

I remember when it broke out in one of the racing kennels that it affected the old dogs the most . . . which is usual. Many of the dogs showed symptoms, but some dogs tested positive and NEVER showed any signs of having it.

They're like service dogs gone wrong.
