Orlando Bloom is fostering a puppy after death of beloved dog Mighty as he poses shirtless in bed with new ‘best buddy’ – The Sun
ORLANDO Bloom is fostering a puppy after the tragic death of his beloved dog, Mighty.
The actor, 43, shared a shirtless selfie with his cute new pooch, Buddy – four months after his poodle Mighty went missing and was found dead.
Orlando wrote on Instagram: "Time for a #cutedog photo. Plz meet BUDDY a one-year-old something and something mix.
"Nothing can replace Mighty man, but fostering this little guy has really filled my heart.
"If you've never fostered or are considering, I'd highly recommend it – it leaves two beings better off and remember what they say never judge a book by its cover."
The actor – who welcomed a baby with fiancee Katy Perry in August – also shared a photo of Buddy before he rescued the pup.
The Pirates Of The Caribbean star thanked Tobie's Small Dog Rescue and The Labelle Foundation for "helping me to find my best ‘buddy’".
Orlando tragically lost his teacup poodle Mighty in July after the pooch went missing for a week.
He told fans at the time: "Mighty's on the other side now.
"After 7 days of searching from sunrise to sunset and into the wee hours, today, the 7th day ~the number of completion~ we found his collar… I have wept more this week than I thought possible, which has been very cathartic and healing…"
He continued: "I left no stone unturned, crawled thru all the man holes, under the roads, searched every back yard and creek bed. Had two separate sniffer dogs do their best as well.
"I feel so grateful to have learned from my little Mighty man that love is eternal and the true meaning of devotion."
Orlando shared photos and a video of himself crying as he got Mighty's name tattooed on his chest in tribute to his beloved pet.
The Lord Of The Rings star had hired a professional pet detective to help search for the pup.
He and Katy, 36, put up lost dog posters offering a $5,000 reward for Mighty’s return.
The couple were seen walking around their neighborhood asking neighbors if they'd seen Mighty.
Emotional Orlando described his loss as a “waking nightmare" and said he was suffering "sleepless nights".
