The “Cool for the Summer” singer said they have incredible people around them loving them, supporting them and “holding us up in this time of need.”
“Buddy was loved by so many people and as small as he was, he made a huge impact in our lives,” Lovato continued. “He truly was human in a way and we were so blessed to have him in our lives.”
“We will never forget our baby boy Buddy and his gentle loving spirit will live on in our hearts forever. RIP my tiniest little nightingale, Buddy,” she added.
The cute pooch was given to Lovato as a Christmas gift last year and instantly became part of her family – he even got his own Instagram account.
Valderrama, who is currently filming his new Fox show “Minority Report,” has not shared anything on social media.
