Schitt’s Creek actor Dan Levy has announced the devastating news that his beloved pet dog has died.
The TV star, who is best known for starring as David Rose in the hit sitcom, shared a sweet Instagram photo of him cuddling his dog, named Redmond, on Wednesday.
He wrote in the caption: ‘Last week I lost my best friend. Heartbroken but grateful for every minute of the last ten years that I got to spend with him. I love you, my sweet boy. ❤️’
Dan, 38, previously revealed how he adopted Redmond when he was four years old, and wanted to shower him with love after he was ‘mistreated and abandoned’ at an adoption fair in Los Angeles.
The actor told his Instagram followers in 2019: ‘Finding him was the greatest thing that ever happened to me. If you are looking for a pet, first make sure you’ve thought it through and that you have the means to care for them properly, THEN please please please consider adopting.
‘There are so many animals just waiting for a better life. #cleartheshelters.’

Actor Sam Huntington was among those to pass on condolences, writing: ‘Oh buddy I’m so sorry. Loved Red.’
Another follower said: ‘My heart breaks for you! You were both so lucky to have found each other.’
One follower who also went through a similar ordeal wrote: ‘Ugh I’m so sorry Dan. We just lost ours in September. Such a terrible feeling. I’m sure your sweet boy was so loved.’
In terms of his career, Dan is starting a new chapter this year with Schitt’s Creek ending last spring after six years entertaining the masses on-screen.
The screenwriter recently addressed fans’ hopes and dreams that a movie adaptation was in the works, however he splashed cold water on that telling Us Weekly: ‘[There’s] no update on a Schitt’s Creek movie.’
However, he did add that he thought it was a ‘really good idea [but] until that happens, we’re leaving it as is’.
