Dog found dead at airport during Delta layover

Alejandro had been placed in the cargo hold of a Delta Air Line jet from Phoenix to New Jersey with a layover in Detroit

Alejandro the Pomeranian did not survive his flight to Detroit, and Delta Air Lines is now trying to figure out what killed the dog, reports CNBC. "He's a member of our family". That's exactly what happened, and somebody has to be responsible for it. The Pomeranian, named Alejandro, was found dead Wednesday morning in its carrier in a cargo facility at the airport, southwest of Detroit in Romulus.

Delta said it is investigating the incident, according to AP. Delta says it's reviewing what happened to Alejandro. When the plane landed in the Motor City, we're told the 8-year-old Pom was alive. but it was discovered he'd died during the process of transferring him to the connecting flight. "There was a stop in Detroit at approximately 6 o'clock in the morning", said Dellegrazie's attorney, Evan Oshan.

The couple, who were moving from Phoenix to Newark, were shocked to find their dog dead and want to know what happened.

"That's all I can think of", Dellegrazie said.

Alejandro's owner says his death "doesn't make any sense". Airline representatives said they are working with Alejandro's owners and offered them a free necropsy to determine the cause of Alejandro's death.

"He's not just a pet, we lost a member of our family", Dellegrazie said Alejandro was a happy, friendly dog that he shared with his girlfriend.

In March, a French bulldog called Kokito died on a United Airlines flight from Houston to NY after a flight attendant told the owner to put the dog, which was in a carrier, in the overhead locker. "The family now has Alejandro and we continue to offer our support", it added.

United shortened the list of animals it will carry in May, limiting it to only cats and dogs, and declining several breeds. The changes don't affect pets in the cabin.

The French bulldog that died in March was not part of the cargo program.
