Katie Price reveals new puppy after seven pets died in her care

Price has been criticised due to the deaths of many of her former pets.

Katie Price has got a new puppy just a matter of weeks after her last dog died after being hit by a car.

Price, who is now 45, bought the German Shepherd pup over the weekend and has christened him, Tank.

Katie shared a short video of the pooch on TikTok.

While Price is talking to the camera, Tank can be seen waddling around in the background.

Shortly after the video was posted, Price found herself temporarily banned from TikTok after she was caught vaping in a video.

While some are overjoyed that Price has gotten a new pup, others are absolutely infuriated.

In the past few weeks a petition to stop Price from owning pets has received over 35,000 signatures.

The petition reads: “A puppy has died in the last 24 hours in Katie prices care. She bought this puppy for her 13 year old child 3 weeks ago. Which was killed in a accident no one witnessed. In the last 5 years more animals have died from lack of care. This isn’t a single family tragedy. It’s a common occurrence.”

The reason behind the petition is that at least seven of Price’s former pets died in her hands.

Nine weeks ago, Price’s ‘protection dog’, Blade, died after being hit by a car. Seven months before that, Price’s former dog, Sharon, was killed on the same road. A year before that another of her dogs was hit by a delivery driver and subsequently died from its injuries.

This time, however, Price remains adamant that she will look after Tank.

Others aren’t convinced.
