KATIE Price is locked in a row with her late puppy’s breeders insisting they told her to “NEVER leave Rolo alone”.
The 42-year-old defended the KRC Bullies after fans “pointed out” the death of the French Bulldog puppy.
But now the breeder has spoken out to insist he has given clear instructions to stay with Rolo at all times.
A spokesperson for the JRC Bullies told the Mirror: “We are sorry this has happened as we told Katie not to leave a little puppy alone.
“We cannot believe the puppy was left unattended because we had left strict instructions. ”
Rolo was a special gift for Katie’s 13-year-old daughter on her birthday.
But just three weeks later, Rolo was found dead in a tragic accident at Katie’s home.
In a lengthy statement on JRC Bullies Intagram, the breeders wrote, “I would just like to say how devastated we are with the news we saw online on Rolo (NOTORIOUS).
“First of all, for all those who send their hate messages and tell us what we should have done or could have done, it really is not necessary, because the people who comment on our page something that we do not can not control is also not necessary, we did. absolutely anything we could do to make sure Rolo got the perfect 5 star home.
“We toured the property, saw exactly where he would live, set it up before we left, then kept in touch with @officialprincess_andre to verify it.
“We were there 24 hours a day for her with advice and support when needed. ”
The statement added that background checks have been done on Katie.
It ended: “Rolo’s death was a tragic accident that had nothing to do with his health or @jrcbullies.
“Rest in peace our special and unique little man who you will truly miss.” “
