A mixed-breed dog died after contracting the coronavirus.
A vet at the National Veterinary Medical Center in Miami Beach confirmed on Monday that the dog, named Bree, contracted the virus while playing with his owner’s family’s dogs.
Bree was just one of many dogs brought in to the veterinary clinic for COVID tests.
The dogs, from different breeds, were all vaccinated against the virus and were all released into the wild, according to the center.
Bri was the second dog brought in for testing, after a dog who contracted the coronivirus was brought in.
Both dogs were released.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed on Friday that Bree, an 8-month-old mixed breed, died from the coronovirus, which has killed more than 3,000 people in the United States.
Brees owner, Drew Brees, says the dog was playing with a family’s two dogs when he developed a fever.
The owner said Bree was a “good guy” and was always around and wanted to play with the dogs.
The dog’s owner told WESH-TV that Bree never complained about the temperature and was happy to be in the home.
