Unfortunately, there is insufficient credible information at the current time to accurately verify this claim.According to the articles published by the South China Morning Post and the Bloomberg, the 17-year-old Pomeranian dog passed away, which belonged to a 60-year-old woman who recovered from the COVID-19. The dog was later separated from its owner and was placed in quarantine. Eventually, the dog was tested negative and released on 14 March 2020.

However, the spokesman for the city’s Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) said that the owner of the dog did not allow an autopsy to examine the cause of the dog's death. The exact cause of death is still unknown and not clear.
