Neighbours fans were devastated this weekend when it was announced that the real-life Bossy the dog has sadly passed away.

The Instagram account @animalactors1 had been updated fans on Bossy's condition over the last few weeks, first posting that Bossy was not very well and had been resting, later stating that she hadn't eaten for a day or so but looked happier, before posting earlier today (March 28) that she had sadly died.

The account shared a black and white photo of a hand cradling Bossy's paw, writing: "Goodbye Bossy, you can run free now. . . . I loved you – you were my best friend – I am broken."

Fans commented on the photo expressing how sad they were to hear about the news, and hoped that the dog was in a better place now.

Saskia Hampele, who played Georgia Brooks in the Australian soap and shared scenes with Bossy, also commented, writing: "Oh Sal this is heartbreaking. Rest in Peace Bossy girl."

Bossy was last mentioned on the soap last year, just before Christmas time for UK viewers, as Georgia called up Kyle Canning to tell him that Bossy's tumour had returned, and he flew out to Germany to spend time with her.
