Aaron Carter’s beloved dog Zelda is in good hands.
The late singer’s 3-year-old German Shepherd is now living with fiancée Melanie Martin’s relatives, according to TMZ.
The outlet reports that Melanie’s sister, Jennifer Martin, and her fiancé, Max, took the pup in one day after Carter was tragically found dead in his bathtub at age 34, with Zelda by his side.
The couple said it “felt right to take Zelda in” because Melanie was “going through a lot” after the former child star died on Nov. 5.
“[Zelda] seemed to be in shock when she was found … acting nervous and scared,” the couple told TMZ, adding that she’s doing “a lot better” now following the traumatic incident.
The pair also noted that she “isn’t going to get fixed, but they don’t want more pups” because Zelda has already had two litters.ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK!
