A family in Sydney is devastated after their 14-month-old puppy died during his week-long stay at a dog training facility. The sisters, Christina and Celia Zazzarino, decided to send their dog, Wiston (Winnie), to a training facility as he had become difficult to handle. They found a facility with good reviews and dropped off Winnie, who was deemed healthy by the vet the day before.

On the fourth day of Winnie's stay, the sisters received a distressing call from the facility. They were informed that Winnie had not been eating for four days and the staff planned to buy him his preferred food. This raised concerns, but the family continued to trust the professionals.

After a week without any updates, Celina, one of the sisters, sent a text message asking for news. The trainer replied that Winnie was doing well and eating better. Later that day, the training facility called to say they were taking Winnie to the vet as his condition had worsened. The facility claimed he was dehydrated and gave him medication.

The sisters requested to pick him up, but they were reassured that he was fine. They received pictures of him along with a message saying he was on the mend.

However, a day later, they were told that Winnie was not doing well after all. When the sisters saw Winnie at the vet, they noticed he had lost weight. The vet confirmed that he was very sick and criticized the training facility for not recognizing this earlier. The family posted about their experience on social media, which went viral. As a result, the facility refunded their money and offered to pay for Winnie's vet care. The head trainer denied any wrongdoing and claimed that Winnie was underweight from the beginning. The Zazzarino sisters are waiting for autopsy results to determine the exact cause of Winnie's death. They seek closure for their loss and hope that the facility will take responsibility for their negligence.
