Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury were photographed for the first time since the death of their pet puppy, Mr. Chai – only six days after the Pomeranian’s custody.
The 21-year-old Love Island co-stars looked grim when they unloaded a £ 2,000 Louis Vuitton dog carrier from their car on Tuesday outside their Manchester home.
The appearance comes after Molly-Mae left social media last week in the midst of a furious reaction after Tommy imported the dog from Russia as a 21st birthday gift for his year-old girlfriend.

Meanwhile, Olivia Buckland of Love Island shared a long statement on her account urging supporters not to support “third-party breeders” or to buy dogs from other countries.

Stipulating that her discussion was “in no way towards my beautiful Molly” because she was “devastated” for the reality star, Olivia explained that she spoke “to make sure that it does not happen again and to raise awareness. “
Molly-Mae spoke about the tragic death of her dog on Wednesday and spoke of the brutal reaction to Mr. Chai’s import from another country.
She said, “Although we fully understand everyone’s opinions about being shipped from Russia, what you need to understand is not what killed him.
“He didn’t have a single white blood cell in his body”: Last Wednesday, Molly-Mae responded to the brutal reaction of Mr. Chai’s import from another country
“He was going to die anyway. The autopsy results showed that his skull was not fully developed and that part of his brain was exposed. He didn’t have a single white blood cell in his body. “
“If we had time again, we would have had a UK dog or a UK rescue dog.”
Tommy bought the dog through Tiffany Chihuahuas & Pomeranians, a Cheshire-based company that is licensed by the Cheshire Council but not a Kennel Club-insured breeder.

Breeder Elena Katerova denied breaking the rules, insisting that customers watch the mother with their puppy via video.
She said, “I am really devastated to learn of Mr. Chai’s death. He was a beautiful young dog with a loving and playful temperament. I had watched him grow up, calling regularly with his biological family.
“My heart goes to Molly-Mae and Tommy. Mr. Chai was a healthy dog, I only work with trusted people and I have a small network of reputable breeders who take care of their dogs to the highest standards and see the animals as part of of their family.
Molly-Mae told her viewers, “None of us wanted to film a video or talk about it, but after all that we have seen today and reading everyone’s opinions, I think it really is important that we sit down and talk about it and explain how we feel and what we know now after receiving the autopsy results.
Surprised: Meanwhile, the dog breeder they brought the puppy to shared his devastation over the puppy’s death and insisted that he was “healthy” (photo)
After describing how energetic Mr. Chai was during his first few days with them “like a puppy should be”, they quickly noticed that he was starting to show symptoms, with the sportsman explaining, “His poop was runny, he vomited, he didn’t run. ‘
They took him to the vet and Molly recalled that while waiting outside, she could “say something was wrong”, adding that Mr. Chai “was squirming” and said that the dogs “almost know when they are about to die ”.
Molly-Mae said that 30 minutes later, the veterinarian had called and informed them that Mr. Chai had had a seizure and died.
“We were both totally shocked,” she said. “Tommy literally threw up everywhere.”
Tough times: Mr. Chai’s death prompted several stars to talk about the importance of researching when buying a dog (they created an Instagram account for him last month)
A representative for Molly-Mae and Tommy confirmed that Mr. Chai died “of a neurological crisis and problems”.
A statement said, “Chai died of a crisis and neurological problems. This is most likely related to the puppy’s skull which is not fully formed (see note on the anterior fontanel below).
“Chai died with a number of the health conditions described below, and the puppy was clearly not fully healthy and could potentially have had an infection and control it for some time before reaching Molly and Tommy. “
He then listed a number of illnesses the dog suffered from, including: “No white blood cells in the blood, anterior fontanel not completely ossified, body condition 3/5, congested liver, enlarged congested spleen, enlarged adrenal glands , congested kidneys, congested colon, congested lungs and dilated right ventricle. “
