There’s sad news from the Orlando Bloom, Katy Perry household as it’s been announced their pet dog Mighty has passed away.
The red poodle had been missing for seven days. After a week of tireless searching, the bad news was confirmed on Wednesday morning, leaving the Pirates of the Caribbean actor devastated.
The adorable teacup poodle went missing last Tuesday, which led to Bloom hiring a pet detective to help search for the little guy.
Unfortunately, it was to no avail.
Bloom revealed the tragic news on Instagram and shared his grief. He posted a video of himself getting a tattoo with Mighty’s name and a heart on his chest.
Tearfully, the 43-year-old patted the tattoo and said, “my boy.”
The actor wrote: “Mighty’s on the other side now. After 7 days of searching from sunrise to sunset and into the wee hours, today, the 7th day ~the number of completion~ we found his collar…”
Orlando Bloom is heartbroken over Mighty’s demise
He described his heartache: “I have wept more this week than I thought possible, which has been very cathartic and healing.”
The Kingdom of Heaven star also wrote about the lengths he went to trying to find Mighty, which included crawling “thru all the manholes, under the roads, searched every back yard and creek bed.”
He also had two sniffer dogs on the dog hunt.

Mighty’s on the other side now. After 7 days of searching from sunrise to sunset and into the wee hours, today, the 7th day ~the number of completion~ we found his collar… I have wept more this week than I thought possible, which has been very cathartic and healing… I left no stone unturned, crawled thru all the man holes, under the roads, searched every back yard and creek bed. Had two separate sniffer dogs do their best as well. I feel so grateful to have learned from my little Mighty man that love is eternal and the true meaning of devotion. I feel sure he was looking down on me whistling in every back yard and knowing that I was doing all I possibly could to respect our bond. He was more than a companion. It was a soul connection for sure. I’m sorry. I love you. Thank you. RIP my MIGHTY HEART my little fellow A ♠️’s ❤️Thank you to the community for allowing me to search through their yards for him and supporting my midnight walks. It was reassuring to see the best of people even in the worst of times. To the angels of @dogdayssar I’m forever in your debt. You ladies are heaven sent. Lastly thank you to @scottcampbell for the ink. I love you brother❤️l
He paid tribute to Mighty, who he said, “taught him that love is eternal and the true meaning of devotion.”
Bloom added: “He was more than a companion. It was a soul connection for sure. I’m sorry. I love you. Thank you. RIP my MIGHTY HEART, my little fellow.”
In his Instagram post, he also included a picture of a gravestone with the words, “wish you were here.”
There was also a cute pic of Bloom and Mighty posing together in silhouette.
Orlando Bloom had asked for prayers for Mighty
A couple of days ago, Bloom posted a picture of himself and Mighty to Instagram and appealed to his fans to send their prayers. He admitted to suffering sleepless nights and to feeling “powerless.”
He also empathized with those who have lost loved ones and asked us to “cherish the moments we share with the ones we love because nothing is promised.”
Rest in peace, Mighty.
In happier news for the household, Katy Perry is currently pregnant with the couple’s first child and is expected to give birth later this summer.
Last month, Perry spoke out about how her 2017 split from Orlando Bloom had left her feeling suicidal. She also spoke of how low record sales had worsened her depression.
Always sad when you lose a pet. I remember our dog went missing as a kid and we into found out ages later a farmer had shot it. Just bad luck he slipped his leash and took off.
