Katie Price left 'numb and shocked' as protection dog Blade is killed

The star has taken to Instagram to share a tribute to her late pooch

Katie Price has been left 'numb and shocked' after her beloved protection dog, Blade, was killed.

Blade, a black German Shepherd, was unfortunately hit by a car and later found on the side of a road.

The tragic passing of the pooch is now the seventh pet that the 45-year-old media personality has lost among other dogs, a horse and a reptile.

Blade's untimely passing is now the seventh pet Katie Price has lost.

Price announced the tragic news on Instagram this afternoon (5 June), sharing with her 2.6 million followers: "Words [sic] can’t express the lost of my best friend my protector my absolutely everything who had sadly passed away today.

"I have no words to say how I’m feeling but numb and shocked rip Blade."

Grove Lodge Veterinary Group, based in Worthing, alerted the public to the incident this morning.

Taking to their official Facebook page, the vet posted: "Unfortunately we have had a large shepherd dog handed into our OOH team last night.

"Found on the A24 near dial post. The dog does not have a microchip, however was wearing a brown Louis Vuitton collar," per LBC.

Blade's death comes just seven months after another one of the model's dogs was killed on the same road.

Sharon, a Pomeranian, was also found on the A24 and subsequently taken to Arun Vets in Pulborough, West Sussex, who went on to confirm it had sadly died.

Five other animals belonging to Price have also died within recent years - starting with a horse back in 2017 who allegedly passed away after being hit by a motor.

Just a year after the horse's death in 2018, the social media star's Alsatian, called Queenie, died after being hit by a delivery driver.

Katie Price announced the tragic news on Instagram this afternoon.

According to The Sun, the mother-of-five also had a chameleon called Marvin who died 'of a broken heart' after her children Princess and Junior went to stay with her ex-partner Peter Andre.

Flash-forward two more years in 2020 and another Alsatian named Sparkle sadly died too after allegedly being hit by another car.

Months later, Price also had a French Bulldog pup called Rolo who passed away after being suffocated.

A petition has previously been launched in 2020 following the handful of Price's pet deaths which called for her to be banned from buying animals altogether.

The petition went on to gain over 31,000 signatures, reportedly leaving Price absolutely 'devastated'.

The petition claimed: "Animals just go missing in her home never to been seen again."

It concluded: "We need to stop this now no more animals need to die."
