The newly adopted dog by Luke Bryan died suddenly according to his wife


Poochie, the 18-year-old dog recently adopted by Luke Bryan and his family, has passed away. Caroline, Bryan's wife, announced sad news on Instagram on Wednesday (Feb. 20).

"If the kindest souls were rewarded with the longest lives, the dogs would survive us all," writes Caroline Bryan, sharing a photo montage of Poochie enjoying his last days with the Bryans. "My heart is sad but full to post this … our sweet Prince Poochie is dead …"

The Bryans adopted Poochie in Proverbs 12:10 of animal rescue in the Nashville area a few weeks ago. According to the relief organization, Poochie would have been abandoned after a member of his former family became allergic to dogs. Animal Control brought him to Proverbs 12:10, and the organization had assumed that he would stay with them until his death because finding new homes for older dogs is a prospect difficult.

However, after Bryan and his family had seen Poochie on social media photos, they had asked to adopt him on February 9 and had officially integrated him into their family shortly thereafter.

"My children especially enjoyed hearing him snore when he slept!" Caroline Bryan adds in her article on social media, proving that the eldest puppy has found a place in their hearts even if they stayed there only a short time. "Thank you @ proverbs1210animalrescue for giving our family the opportunity to love this sweet dog … Poochie loved you all."

Caroline Bryan founded Brett's Barn, which offers pet therapy sessions to children, in 2017, following the death of her niece, Sadie Brett Boyer, who was only seven months old. The barn is on the family property of the Bryans and includes, among other animals, alpacas and kangaroos.

Of course, the heart of the Bryans exceeds the animals: Luke Bryan and his wife welcomed their nephew Til in 2014, after the sudden death of his father (Til's mother was the sister of Bryan, Kelly, deceased in 2007). They are also the parents of their two sons, Bo and Tate, and are close to Til's two older sisters.
