In a heart-breaking post uploaded to Instagram on Wednesday, the star revealed that after a wide-ranging dog hunt, little Mighty’s collar has been found and the dog is now presumed dead.
A desperate search
The star took to the streets and enlisted pals and fans to help. He even hired the assistance of sniffer dogs in a bid to find his beloved pup but it seems that, despite leaving no stone left unturned, his dog will never return.
In a tribute to his much-loved pet, the star has had a tattoo of the pup’s name, “Mighty” emblazoned across his chest.
In an emotional caption that accompanied the post, Bloom wrote,
“After 7 days of searching from sunrise to sunset … we found his collar... I have wept more this week than I thought possible… I feel so grateful to have learned from my little Mighty man that love is eternal and the true meaning of devotion.”
Some much-needed support
Heavily pregnant fiancé Katy Perry simply replied to the post with the words, “I love you” and a host of celebrities and fans have also wished the star well, with the post receiving a quarter of a million likes in just three hours.
Animal lovers will all understand that pets become family members and the pain of losing them is intense.
We wish Orlando all the very best at this sad time and hope that Mighty is playing happily over the rainbow bridge.
