“Chai became out whole world in the short time we had him and we couldn’t have taken any better care of him. We loved him so much and he brought us more happiness than we can describe.”
“We are really hoping that we can get some clearer answers in the coming days whilst we wait for details and more information from the veterinary experts.
“Myself and Tommy are completely in shock and truly devastated.”
She continued: “In a world currently full of tragedy and loss, we understand there are far far greater issues that this, we just need to share this information in order to start the process of trying to accept and overcome this awful situation.”
“We asking for some time and respect so that we can come to terms with this immense sadness and loss of our beautiful puppy.”
Mancunian Boxer Tommy Fury, younger brother of boxing star Tyson Fury, and Influencer Molly-Mae Hague famously met on the ITV reality dating show Love Island in 2019 and have been living together in Manchester city centre since filming ended.
