Reese Witherspoon was left ‘heartbroken’ as she revealed her family’s beloved dog Pepper has died.

The actress, 44, took to Instagram on Tuesday to share the sad news and paid tribute to her pup Pepper, who she described as ‘such a loyal and devoted family member’.

Reese shared a cute picture of Pepper wearing a USA themed bandana around her neck and told fans: ‘Our sweet Pepper passed away yesterday. My goodness, she was such a loyal and devoted family member.

‘I am so heart broken, but I am also deeply grateful for all the love and comfort she brought our family. Now she’s in dog heaven where all great pets go.’

Reese, who recently took part in a virtual Legally Blonde reunion, added: ‘Chasing tennis balls, running through open fields of wild flowers and being the Queen that she is. That’s what I believe. ?? ? .’

She signed off by writing: ‘We will always love you, Pepper.’

Reese was inundated with supportive messages from fans and her celebrity pals, including her Big Little Lies co-star Laura Dern, who posted: ‘Sweetest Pepper. Such a heartbreak.’

Both Julianne Moore and Sarah Paulson left broken heart emoji underneath Reese’s post, while Cheryl Strayed – the woman who story Wild is about and Reese had played in the movie adaptation – commented: ‘Oh, honey. I’m so sorry. Pepper was the sweetest.’

Pepper had featured heavily on the star’s Instagram page, with Reese sharing her last post with Pepper on October 7, which was a selfie of her and her dog together.

She captioned it: ‘Pepper wanted to check in with y’all and see how everyone’s doing. ?.’

Reese’s lookalike daughter Ava, 21, who she shares with ex Ryan Phillipe had also paid tribute to Pepper in a sweet post she shared online.

Ava revealed that Pepper had been battling an ‘aggressive cancer’ for months now and ‘took a turn for the worst’.

Alongside a series of pictures of her canine pal, she wrote: ‘Today is a tough day. Our sweet girl, Pepper, passed away last night from an aggressive cancer, which she’d been battling for months now. Just when we thought she was getting better, things took a turn for the worst, and she passed peacefully, surrounded by those who love her.

Today is a tough day. Our sweet girl, Pepper, passed away last night from an aggressive cancer, which she’d been battling for months now. Just when we thought she was getting better, things took a turn for the worst, and she passed peacefully, surrounded by those who love her. If you ever met Peps, you’d know she was such a special girl. She was smart, sassy, and loved cuddling. She enjoyed playing in the yard with our Labrador, Hank, and would make everyone laugh with her surprisingly speedy “zoomies” around the house. She also had a unique way of expressing herself with funny little noises that sounded like they were from some sort of pigeon. Pepper was simply the best, and I repeatedly told her how perfect I thought she was. This girl got me through so many tough times, including some of my teenage years, and I am forever grateful for our bond. I’ll always treasure the times when I’d come home from college and she would meet me at the door, jumping for joy, and I’d pick her up so she could lick my face. She really knew how to make me feel special! As sad as I am and as much as I’ve cried over losing her, I am happy she had such a great life and is no longer in pain. ❤️ Love you forever, miss Peps.
