Katie Price’s daughter has told of her heartbreak after her puppy passed away just weeks after she got him.

Princess – Price’s 13-year-old daughter with her ex Peter Andre – posted a string of pictures of her pet pooch Rolo on Instagram as she revealed that he had died.

“Rip baby boy I love you so much, u meant everything to me, miss you already,” she wrote, adding a string of crying emojis and hearts.

Princess is thought to have been given the dog for her 13th birthday in June.

She shared a picture of him on Instagram two weeks ago, telling her followers: “My new puppy Rolo I’m in love.”

A source told The Sun that Price was devastated after Rolo was found dead and that everyone was in “floods of tears”.

The family apparently got Rolo from JRC Bullies, who posted a message on Instagram saying that the puppy’s death was a "tragic accident".

The post said they were “devastated” at the news.

“Rolo’s death was a tragic accident that had nothing at all to do with his health or @jrcbullies,” the message said.

“Rest in Peace our special and unique little man you will be truly missed.”

Rolo’s death comes just a few months after Price’s pet Alsatian died after being hit by a car.

In 2018, the animal-lover’s dog Queenie passed away after apparently being hit by a delivery driver.

The sad news about Rolo comes shortly after the family celebrated as Price’s son Harvey left hospital, 10 days after he was rushed to intensive care.

The 18-year-old – who has Prader-Willi syndrome, which causes obesity, and is autistic and partially blind – was admitted to Epsom Hospital on July 12 with a high temperature and breathing difficulties.
