Buddy had left such an impact on the singer that Lovato had even created an Instagram account for the adorable dog under the username Demisbuddy. In an effort to make sure her fans “don’t forget” her fluffy friend, she posted a video with a picture of Buddy, introducing him with a clever photo edit and voice-over job to make it look like he was talking.

He was taken from us way too soon in a tragic accident and though I will never know why this had to happen, I do know that God only puts us through situations that we can handle so with that, together we our staying strong.”
Demi had even gotten her maltipoo Buddy involved in promoting her music, showing love and adoration for her new baby. It is unclear what the accident was that took her dog’s life, as Lovato didn’t say what happened. She has asked for privacy in her period of mourning.
“He truly was human in a way and we were so blessed to have him in our lives. We ask you that you please respect our privacy while we take this time to grieve and remember the magical moments we spent with our little angel.
