Lewis Hamilton says his “heart is broken” after his rescue dog Coco died after suffering a heart attack on Thursday.
The six-year-old bulldog passed away in Hamilton’s arms as he tried to revive her, surrounded by members of the family.
Hamilton took to social media on Friday to share an emotional tribute, saying he was glad Coco had spent a happy final day before her death.
“Her little heart gave in, we think it was a heart attack. I tried to revive her but it was no use.”
Her breeder said she was going to have to put her down as she wouldn’t be able to afford all the things she would need to survive, she went through a lot to become the bouncy, lazy loving dog she was.
“Naturally, my heart is broken but i hope she’s in a better place with my Aunty Diane. Wanted to share with you and thank those of you who loved her, cared for her.”
