We’re are at time where the cyber-world is dominating the real world. It’s not strange to see animals having many followers on the internet. In fact, some are really famous, much to their owners’ delight. For this reason, it’s quite sad to tell you about the death of Loki, one of the most followed dogs on social media.
Cause of death
Loki was a lively example of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi dog breed and he had over a million followers on different social media. The antics that his owners posted through photos and videos captivated — and still captivate — people worldwide.
Loki, at the age of 5, had died after a yearlong battle against a chronic renal condition. Despite the efforts of veterinarians, the little guy passed away in a specialist hospital in Renton, Washington, where he had been urgently transferred to from Canada.
Additional information on the death of the famous Corgi
The friendly Corgi was born in a little American town in Oklahoma. He grew up on the Pacific coast in Vancouver, Canada. During Loki’s hospitalization, thousands of people donated money to help pay for his treatment.
