Couldn’t have been worse for the dog owner when he arrived to collect his dog from
boarding kennel and come across the news that his pet died. Apparently, the pooch was found covered in urine and faeces inside the kennel. According to Jonny Bayfield, the owner of the deceased dog says that Dogs 4 Us, Manchester didn’t have even a single idea that the Benji, the eight-year-old furball was dead.

The disgusting conditions were unbearable. Jonny says that they left Benji,
in boarding as fit and healthy. In their defense, the organization, Dogs 4 Us has extended their condolences to Bayfield and mentioned that the clean-up wasn’t done when Jonny arrived to pick Benji up. With a phone, Jonny’s heart broke into pieces. He mentioned saying that “It was heartbreaking when I got the phone call and had to tell the kids. Benji was a huge part of our family. We've had him longer than any of the kids so he was like a child to us. We have used those kennels a couple of times previously. This was a last-minute holiday where we couldn't get any family to keep the dogs and this was the only place with space available.” Bull Terrier
According to Dogs 4 Us, Benji died of natural cause and admitted that it was a mistake on their part that the staff wasn’t aware of Benji’s death. Hence, the kennel premises were messy at the time of arrival of Mt. Bayfield.
It is certainly sad to hear this heartbreaking news. Keeping our pets in kennel boarding isn’t an easy task. Before enrolling your pooch into a kennel facility, make sure you do a thorough background check of the same.
