Justin Bieber paid a tribute to his Papillon, who passed away, on his Instagram account, with a picture of the two of them and the caption that says “R.i.p. Sammy. You were the best puppy ever.”
Sammy, who was a brown and white Papillon, was probably not very young, since the photo shows the singer with his famous bangs that he sported when he was just starting in the music business. The background of the photo suggests Sammy was adopted from a shelter.
Bieber talked about his dog on a radio show back in 2011, when he said he only had one dog, Sammy, but he was living with his grandparents in Canada.
In other dog-related Bieber news, Justin’s father Jeremy had an angry fit last month and threw their dog, an English bulldog by the name of Karma, out of the window. The window was on the second floor of the house but the poor creature fortunately survived.
