Faye Brookes has hit back at concerns over her dogs, insisting the pups are her ‘world’.
The former Coronation Street actress, who played Kate Connor in the ITV soap, owns two pomeranians named Bao and Bear, with her boyfriend Joe Davies.
However, it was claimed that neighbours near their Manchester home allegedly voiced their concerns over the pups online.
According to the Sun, local residents are said to have accused the 33-year-old of leaving them outside during the recent heatwave.
Having none of it, the star was questioned about the allegations below a recent Instagram post.
A follower asked: ‘Is it true you do not care for your dogs?’
‘Of course I care about my dogs, they’re my world,’ she replied.
Faye and Joe welcomed their pet pooches into their home last November, and have set up an adorable Instagram page for Bao and Bear, aptly named @baoandbear.
However, some people in their local community voiced concerns for the pups in an online group.
The Sun reported that one user commented: ‘Not to be a massive Scrooge – but are the two Pomeranians that are left on the balcony in the building opposite us bothering anyone else?
‘It feels like they’re left outside all day and night barking and it’s been relentless when WFH [working from home] every day.’
Another member allegedly responded: ‘It’s hot and they shouldn’t be left out there like that for so long, poor things.’
‘At what point does it start to look like an animal welfare issue?’ another resident is said to have asked.
‘The balconies get so hot, surely you can’t leave dogs out there for any amount of time?’
