The singer initially got the dog from an animal shelter after moving to a new town when he was younger.
"We moved to a city where we didn't know anybody, and I kind of wanted a friend around. And Sam was kind of like that friend," he said in 2009.
Since he's basically Justin's childhood pet — and has been in his life even before he got famous — we totally understand why he's so depressed over the death of his dog. We hope he feels better soon!
