The autopsy report for the couple's new family member reveals that the dog had a number of health issues.
Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury have taken to their YouTube account to address the backlash they received online, following the death of their new Pomeranian puppy, Mr. Chai. Tragically, the small dog died just six days after the couple brought him home.
The 'Love Island' couple have since received the autopsy results of Mr. Chai's cause of death, and unfortunately, the dog was riddled with health problems. Falling ill just two days after welcoming him into their family, the pair brought him to the vet, where he suffered a seizure and passed away. Autopsy results show that his skull was not formed properly, and he had a very low white blood cell count.

Molly-Mae and Tommy received Mr. Chai from Russia, which many online believed to be the reason for his short life. However, the pair wanted to set the record straight after their loss, and said: "We’re not asking for any kind of sympathy. What’s happened is awful. I’m asking you to understand that the dog travelling from Russia is not the reason he died."
Speaking openly about their dg's short life, Tommy said remarks: "I'm thankful that it happened to us and not to someone else, because I don't wish this on my worst enemy. And that's the truth. [...] The best thing of this though is that, the dog was gonna die around that time anyway, so I'm thankful that he came over here and he had the best few days of his life."
Breaking down in tears, Molly-Mae says: "Never once shouted at that dog, and every single night he slept in our bed. And I'm so happy that we did that."
The YouTube video was uploaded with this description: "We know there are such bigger issues going on in the world right now. We really didn't want to have to post this today, I just can't not give you all the explanation and truth. Tommy and I are not bad people, we hope this video gives you some understanding as to why our little Chai passed away."
