PETA Founder Ingrid Newkirk said: " There is almost nothing more Katie Price could do to cement the fact that she is an unfit dog guardian and an irresponsible person."

In the clip, Katie was seen turning to the dog in frustration with her hand in the air after he kept sitting on her clothes.

The German Shepherd died after being hit by a vehicle on the A24, which is close to Katie's East Sussex home.

The tragedy happened just seven months after another of Katie's dogs, Sharon, was killed on the same road.

A driver picked the Pomeranian off the A24 and took her to Arun Vets in Pulborough, West Sussex, who confirmed the death.

The year before that, a delivery driver hit her Alsatian, Queenie, who was gifted to her by ex Kieran hayler on her 38th birthday.

In 2020 a second Alsatian, Sparkle, was hit by a car after escaping onto the A24.

Months later, French Bulldog Rolo suffocated after being squashed underneath a chair.

Katie also had to give away an out-of-control Alsatian, Bear, for attacking other animals.
