Malta’s world-famous cliff-diving dog passes away

Malta’s famous cliff-diving dog has sadly passed away.

Titti, 10, had been unwell for past few weeks and was being treated for a high white blood cell count.

Her owner Carmelo Abela, 54, said she suffered heart problems and the kindest thing to do in the end was to put her to sleep.

He added: ‘With a very heartbreaking moment, I had to say goodbye to our shadow, Titti.

‘She will always be in our hearts. And thank you for all the support you gave us while she was alive.’

The little dog became an overnight sensation after first being featured on 89.7 Bay six years ago.

Her amazing antics soon sparked interest around the world after attracting more than 23 million Facebook video views on Bay Easy.

She was featured in The Daily Mail, The Washington Post, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Daily Mirror and The Sun as well as on CNN, BBC World News, France 24 and Sky News.

The Jack Russell terrier fast become a tourist attraction at St Peter’s Pool near Delimara, where she loved nothing more than leaping into the glittering blue sea.

She could even perform amazing synchronised dives with her owner.

RIP Titti, the diving dog from Malta!
