Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas' pet dog Waldo was recently killed in a freak accident.

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner have paid tribute to their late dog Waldo with a pair of matching tattoos.

On Wednesday last week (Jul 24), newlyweds Joe and Sophie lost their pet dog Waldo in a freak accident aged just one-. TMZ reports that Waldo was "spooked by a pedestrian, broke free, ran into the street and was struck by a vehicle."

Joe and Sophie adopted Waldo Picasso, an Alaskan Klee Klai, along with his brother Porky Basquiat, in 2018. The Jonas Brothers star and Game of Thrones actress regularly shared photos of Waldo on their social media accounts and spoke about him in interviews.

Taking to Instagram yesterday (Jul 30), Joe posted an image of his new tattoo along with the moving caption: "R.I.P. my little angel."

The tattoo itself is a simple portrait of Waldo's head on Joe's right forearm and it sits next to Joe's crown tattoo and rope tattoo. Meanwhile, Sophie posted her identical arm tattoo on her Instagram story and wrote: "I miss you, Waldo. Rest in peace, my little baby."

TMZ claims that Joe and Sophie "were so torn up they had to go to a therapist after the incident".

Discussing Waldo and his brother Porky with Today, Joe said: "Porky is a maniac and Waldo's really shy so we've got a good contrast in personalities. They like to bully each other occasionally and eat things they're not supposed to chew on but they're adorable, it's hard to be mad at them".

Our thoughts go out to Sophie and Joe at this time.
