LANCASTER, CALIFORNIA: Aaron Carter's beloved dog has found a safe haven in his fiancee's sister's home. Jennifer Martin, Melanie's sister, and her fiancé Max took in the dog Zelda Rehomed, a three-and-a-half-year-old German Shepherd, weeks after the singer was found dead in the bathtub of his California home, according to TMZ.

Zelda was reportedly present in the room where Aaron was found dead, and acted nervous and scared in the aftermath. Jennifer and Max told TMZ that as Melanie is going through a lot after the loss of her fiance, it made more sense for them to take the dog in.

"Melanie was going through a lot after Aaron's death, so it just felt right to take Zelda in," they said, adding, "The dog's been doing a lot better since the traumatic incident." Zelda gave birth to two puppies. But they are concerned that the surgery may alter her personality because she has already gone through a lot. When Aaron died, he also had another puppy named Karma, although Karma wasn't as distraught as Zelda was. She was reportedly adopted by Jennifer's co-worker.

Melanie, Aaron's fiancee, is utterly devastated by the sudden death of the star. In a statement made after the news broke, she said, “My fiancé Aaron Carter has passed away. I love Aaron with all my heart and it’s going to be a journey to raise a son without a father. Please respect the privacy of my family as we come to terms with the loss of someone we love greatly. We are still in the process of accepting this unfortunate reality. Your thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated."

The 'I Want Candy' singer was found dead in a bathtub at his Lancaster, California, home on November 5. Two days later, TMZ reported that numerous compressed air cans had been found in Aaron's bathroom and bedroom, suggesting he may have been huffing right before his death. A number of prescription medications were also allegedly discovered. In addition, Aaron's medically trained neighbors heard a panicked 911 call on a police scanner and rushed to help before paramedics or police arrived at the scene.
