Justin Bieber is mourning the death of his beloved pooch Sammy, who lived with his because of his busy schedule.
Posting an old photograph of himself and his pet, Justin wrote on Instagram: “R.i.p Sammy you were the best puppy ever (sic)”
The 20-year-old star revealed in 2009 that the rescue dog became his “friend” when he moved to a new city and didn’t know anyone.
He said at the time: “I have a dog, his name is Sammy, I got him about a year ago.
“We moved to a city where we didn’t really know anybody so I wanted a friend, and Sam was that friend. I visited him in an animal shelter, I really encourage going out to an animal shelter to get a dog that doesn’t have a home.”
While Justin was devoted to Sammy, his treatment of some of his family’s other animals has sparked controversy.
