Orlando took to Instagram on the evening of July 15 to plead with fans and followers to help him find Mighty. "🚨MIGHTY IS MISSING 🚨in Montecito California," Orlando captioned a slideshow of photos of the adorable red teacup poodle, adding that Mighty "is chipped and his collar has a number to call."

"If you take him to your local vet or shelter or police station he can be traced back to me for a reward please only send REAL INFO my heart is already broken so please don't add insult to injury 🖤," the heartbroken British actor wrote.
The dog is often photographed in Orlando's arms — and is often confused with Nugget, Katy's look-alike red poodle. Orlando adopted Mighty in 2017 during a break in his romance with Katy, to whom he proposed in 2019.

Many of Orlando's celebrity pals took to the comments of his Instagram post to weigh in on the sad news. "Oh love . Thinking of you," wrote Liv Tyler. "Oh I'm so so sorry, I can't imagine the pain you're going through. Mighty must and will be found!! 🙏🙏🙏❤️," added Helena Christensen.
Trudie Styler commented, "Oh I'm sorry Orly Sending heartfelt love and prayers for his safe return," while Samantha Ronson wrote, "Sending good thoughts to the universe for you 💔❤️💔."
Mighty accompanies Orlando everywhere — even on motorcycles and bicycle rides. In 2017, the actor shared a photo of himself biking with the poodle nestled in a bag hanging from his chest, captioning it "#mansbestfriend 👊🏻." In 2018, he shared a pic of Mighty inside a carrier slung across his chest as he sat atop a motorbike.

In February, Orlando took Mighty along to Milan Fashion Week in Italy. He shared a slideshow of photos of the pooch accompanying him all over town and watching the Hugo Boss catwalk presentation.
"Mighty did #mfw like a @boss I just tagged along," he joked in a caption promoting the Hugo Boss show.
