YouTube star PewDiePie has revealed his beloved one-eyed pug Maya has passed away at 17 years old.
Often seen or heard barking in the background of his videos, many PewDiePie fans will be more than familiar with his two adored pugs.
Maya and Edgar are his two pups which have been featured in a ton of videos over the years, and fans have even gone as far as to make music dedicated to them.
The popular YouTuber revealed earlier this year that his pug, Maya, who is also missing her left eye, was in bad health and suffering from dementia.
Now, on December 18, PewDiePie and his wife Marzia revealed on Instagram that Maya has sadly passed after 17 years.
“Said farewell to my little Maya this morning,” PewDiePie wrote. “17 years is a long time for a pug, but no time in the world would’ve ever been enough.”
