Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner's puppy Waldo dies after it was struck by a car on the streets of NYC
Waldo Picasso, the couple's Alaskan Klee Kai, was struck and killed by a car on the streets of New York City earlier this week.
It is a tragic day for newlyweds Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner. Their Alaskan Klee Kai, Waldo Picasso, was struck by a car in New York City.
According to TMZ, Waldo Picasso was struck and killed by a car on the streets of New York City earlier this week. A representative informed that it happened on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The couple's dog walker had Waldo on a leash when he was spooked by a pedestrian, broke free from the walker and ran into the street, where he was struck by a vehicle. A representative described it as a "freak accident".
The couple went to the police on Friday to report the accident. The delay in filing the report came because the couple was understandably devastated and had to go to a therapist after the accident.
Joe and Sophie are yet to address the unfortunate accident and their loss. The couple got Waldo in April 2018. Porky Basquiat Jonas, introduced his new friend on Instagram. "Me, my parents and I have adopted my actual brother from the same litter. Please welcome my little brother @waldopicassojonas," he captioned the photo.
In an interview, Joe had previously spoken about the dogs and how Turner and he adopted the duo. "They are the bougiest dogs I've ever met." Describing their personalities, Jonas said, “Porky is a maniac, a wild man. And Waldo’s really shy.”
Despite the polar opposite personalities, Joe said that the dogs were a perfect fit for him and his wife. "They’ve gone all over the world. They’ve [flown] internationally, they’ve got passports. They’re the bougiest dogs I’ve ever met. I think I knew they were definitely part of the family when my parents met them and my mom was buying them gifts and treats and hoping that she could babysit when I travel," he shared. "That's when you know they are definitely a family dog."
“Taking care of these two dogs has been so amazing,” Joe had said. “In New York, it’s great too — there’s obviously a lot of dogs and amazing dog parks, so they love it. I love it. And it definitely feels like home when I’m done touring and I can go back and I see those two dogs — it makes me really happy. They definitely chill me out.”
