Following the death of Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury’s little dog Mr Chai, Olivia Attwood is having her say on the situation.

Taking a social media break following the backlash surrounding the death of their pup, a source revealed that Molly-Mae and Tommy are trying to process the loss and step away from the anger online.

When the news came that Mr Chai was imported from Russia, many people questioned the couple’s decision, with fans slamming the couple for shopping overseas instead of adopting a rescue in the UK.

Others even questioned whether Molly-Mae and Tommy were the reason for the dog’s death, taking him out “without his injections” or “too soon” after birth. However, in an emotional video, Molly-Mae and Tommy addressed the backlash, admitting that they were wrong to get the puppy from Russia, but went with a celebrity breeder who has sold dogs to their friends and so, felt they were doing the right thing.

Explaining that Mr Chai’s autopsy revealed he died due to an enlarged skull and overdeveloped organs, the pup only lasted six days in the pair’s care before passing away – something which Molly-Mae revealed was never flagged.

Now, Olivia Attwood has jumped to the couple’s defence, slamming celebrity breeders for trying to flog puppies on Islanders after their stint on the show.

“Since I’ve come out of Love Island I’ve had breeders like that message me offering me a free dog like they’re a f***ing pair of shoes or something,” she said in an Instagram story.

Explaining that these breeders leave a “chain of misery”, Olivia added that she believes Molly-Mae and Tommy fell victim to trickery from a VIP breeder.

“It’s just horrendous. I really don’t want you guys to go and pile on to Molly and Tommy because it’s not about them, they’ve been conned by one of these establishments.”

Continuing, she wrote:

“At the end of the day if the laws were stricter these establishments wouldn’t be able to operate and then you wouldn’t have these kind of stories.

“There is no care in that kind of breeding, taking dogs from third parties is purely a money-making industry, and the mothers of these dogs, well if you do some research, their existence is miserable until they can no longer produce puppies and they’re just basically disposed of. So for everyone who’s had a dog from this kind of breeder and goes ‘my dog’s fine’, well good for you, but the whole chain of misery that follows that dog is not fine.”

The breeder that Molly-Mae and Tommy chose to get a dog off was Tiffany Chihuahuas & Pomeranians. Based in the UK, many of the company’s puppies are imported with a variety of celebrity clients including reality TV stars. In a statement the company addressed the death of Molly-Mae and Tommy’s dog, claiming no fault and explaining that “Mr Chai was a healthy dog”, that went though “rigorous health checks” before being sold.
