Scarlet, a puppy adopted from a New York shelter at 9 weeks of age, became ill, was euthanized and later tested positive for rabies, marking the first case of rabies in a domestic animal in Vermont in nearly two decades. The puppy was tested for rabies because she bit her owner the day before she was euthanized. Fifteen people who had contact with Scarlet are undergoing rabies prophylaxis injections.
