Cara Delevingne's emotional dog picture

Cara Delevingne nearly broke down in tears when she was given a picture of her dead dog.

The 24-year-old model was presented with a digitally-made portrait of her late French Bulldog Mouse by celebrity artist Perspektiv, and he admitted the star almost got emotional when she saw the artwork.

He wrote on Instagram: "Got to chill with a great friend @caradelevingne right before she opened @hm

"She almost cried too cause of her Dog (sic)"

Cara's pet pooch sadly passed away two years ago and the star took to her Instagram to pay tribute to the cute canine.

She wrote: "RIP Mouse Delevingne!! I miss you so much!! Hope your running wild and free somewhere (sic)"

Cara hit the headlines in August over another of her pooches, husky Leo, after animal lovers were reportedly upset about the mutt having a pepper spray training collar.

The anti-barking devices give off citronella sprays when a dog's bark reaches a certain level.

Lynn Barber, the training and behaviour manager for Dogs Trust charity, said at the time: "At the Dogs Trust we don't recommend the use of any adverse technique or equipment for any kind of behaviour issue.

"You have to find out the cause of the dog's behaviour rather than punish it."

Cara is a huge fan of her pet and even took him to London in August for the press tour of her latest movie 'Suicide Squad'.

But it's not just dogs she has a penchant for, the star recently had a skeletal snake tattooed on her hand.
