If you didn’t know already, Boo, a Pomeranian dog, was an internet sensation and was termed “the world’s cutest dog”. He was also a brand ambassador for an airline company. Currently, he has a following of almost 17 million people on Facebook.
He gained so much fame in so little time, all based on his cute little face. Sadly, the 12-year-old dog passed away in his sleep due to a heart condition.
Boo had a friend called “Buddy”, who passed away in 2017 as well. The family wrote, “We think his heart literally broke when Buddy left us. He hung on and gave us over a year. But it looks like it was his time, and I’m sure it was a most joyous moment for them when they saw each other in heaven.”
Boo’s owners announced his death with a heartbreaking Instagram post.

Dearest friends of Boo, With deepest sadness I wanted to share that Boo passed away in his sleep early this morning and has left us to join his best friend, Buddy. Our family is heartbroken, but we find comfort knowing that he is no longer in any pain or discomfort. We know that Buddy was the first to greet him on the other side of that rainbow bridge, and this is likely the most excited either of them have been in a long time. Since starting Boo’s FB page, I’ve received so many notes over the years from people sharing stories of how Boo brightened their days and helped bring a little light to their lives during difficult times. And that was really the purpose of all this…Boo brought joy to people all over the world. Boo is the happiest dog I’ve ever met. He was so easy going that we never had to bother with training. He made the manliest of men squeal with delight over his cuteness and made everyone laugh with his quirky, tail wagging personality. Over the years Boo met some super cool people, a lot of crazy talented people, but most of all so many kind people…friends who gave him endless love, people who prioritized his comfort over getting that perfect picture, partners who understood that Buddy ALWAYS had to be included, and last but definitely not least, the amazing doctors, therapists, and staff at Adobe Animal Hospital and Sage Veterinary Centers for the countless hours of care and dedication they poured into Buddy and Boo. I brought Boo home in the spring of 2006 and so started the greatest, most heartwarming friendship of all time. Shortly after Buddy died, Boo showed signs of heart issues. We think his heart literally broke when Buddy left us. He hung on and gave us over a year. But it looks like it was his time, and I’m sure it was a most joyous moment for them when they saw each other in heaven. Boo, we love you with all our hearts and will miss you until the day we meet again. Have fun running around with Buddy and creating adorable mischief wherever you guys go. Thank you to all of you for following along on their silly adventures over the past 10 years. They sure had a LOT of fun. With love and our deepest gratitude, Boo’s humans
He died in his sleep and was suffering from heart problems since his friend, Buddy, had left them. “Boo’s humans” have described him as a dog who loved bringing smiles to everyone’s face, all around the world. The 12-year-old dog surely seemed like a pleasure to have. He was adored all over the world by his fans and he held a special place in his owners’ hearts as well!
Moreover, Buddy and Boo were BFF goals.
They were SO cute together! My heart is literally breaking right now.
Boo was so adorably cool that celebrities wanted to have meet and greets with him! Here’s a picture of Boo and Buddy with Anderson Cooper, an American journalist.
