Pets on the Titanic
How many pets were on the Titanic, and how many survived?
The only pets who survived were 3 dogs. One of which was Mrs. Elizabeth Rothschild's Pomeranian. She said she would not get on a lifeboat without the little dog. The others were another Pomeranian and the Harpers' prize dog Sun Yat-Sen All other pets and animals perished in the sinking. A women's body was even found, and she was still holding her shaggy dog in her arms.
The Captain's dog was luckier than most, he was left at home.
Dogs on the Titanic were kept in kennels, and at one point when the ship was sinking, the dogs were let out.
All Pets Gone
When the Titanic sank, almost all animals (Other than 3 dogs.) Perished in the sinking.
Why did most people abandon the pets?
