Less than a week after returning home from their honeymoon, newlyweds Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are mourning the loss of one of their two dogs, an Alaskan Klee Kai named Waldo. According to TMZ, Waldo was hit by a car in New York City on Wednesday night in New York City by a driver who then fled the scene.

E! News spoke to the police, who confirmed a woman filed a police report on Friday which said that on Wednesday night at around 11:30 pm a car struck a dog and then fled the scene. Waldo was taken to the hospital where he later died. According to TMZ the couple delayed filing the report because they were so emotional over the loss.

Joe and Sophie got Waldo in April 2018 to join their other Alaskan Klee Kai, Porky. Both dogs were from the same litter and Sophie announced the new addition to the family on her Instagram that month, captioning the photo: “Welcome to the family @waldopicassojonas.” 

Both dogs were present at Sophie and Joe’s wedding in France wearing adorable tuxedos to match the groom’s party. Joe previously opened up to PEOPLE saying Waldo and Porky are “the bougiest dogs I’ve ever met.” He also revealed that Porky is the “wild” one of the brothers, while Waldo tended to be “shy.”

The couple is yet to address their loss publicly, however, they were spotted over the weekend taking Porky for a walk with Sophie cradling him in her arms on the footpath.
