Russell Crowe has heartbreakingly revealed that his puppy, Louis the papillion, has tragically died.
The actor broke the sad news to fans in a tweet.
“This is Louis the Papillion. 16 months old. Tiny, cheeky, brave. He won my heart,” Crowe wrote on Thursday.

“Unfortunately today, on the second anniversary of my fathers passing, Louis was hit by a truck.
“We tried to get him to the vet, but he died in my arms while I was telling him how much we loved him.”
Alongside the tweet, Crowe added a picture of the tiny puppy.
Crowe’s father, John Alexander, died in 2021 at the age of 85.
“I arrived back in the bush last night. Today, although the sun is shining and the torrential rain has abated, this date will forever be tinged with sadness. My dear old man, my beautiful dad, the most gentle of men, has passed away,” Crowe tweeted on March 30, 2021.
The Gladiator actor received an outpouring of support in the comments section about the death of Louis.

“Bloody hell, mate. I’m sorry,” another added.
“Well this is just so heartbreaking,” a third wrote.
The pup, who was only 16 months old, has featured prominently on Crowe’s social media.

Just last December the actor posted a picture of little Louis in a Ralph Lauren polo dog outfit which was matching with Crowe’s own Ralph Lauren Polo shirt.
“I’m not at all a fan of dressing dogs up, but, a friend bought little Louis a @RalphLauren polo so he can match with dad. I think the other dogs on the farm are going to get jealous. Pretty fun,” the actor wrote in a tweet.
Crowe also has a blue heeler puppy.
