PewDiePie and his wife Marzia shared the heartbreaking news about Maya in an Instagram post.

He wrote: “Said farewell to my little Maya this morning… 17 years is a long time for a pug, but no time in the world would’ve ever been enough.

“I didn’t think I could love a dog as much as I loved her.”

He continued: “Thank you for all the wonderful time we got to spend with you. Thank you for always making my days brighter. Thank you for bringing me closer to Marzia.

“I will miss you so much and I already do. You will always be in my heart Maya.”

People took to the comments to express their condolences to the YouTuber.

A fifth commented: “Sorry to hear mate, she had a big life for a little pup.”

PewDiePie has been open about the decline in his pug’s health difficulties as she began suffering from dementia this year and previously lost one of her eyes.

In an earlier video, he said to his viewers: “We’ll see how she develops but Maya has the ‘dementies’.

“She’s so old. Her mind is kind of declining a bit.”

PewDiePie made a name for himself in the early 2010s for his popular ‘Let’s Play’ video game series, which would see him stream a mixture of horror and action games.

He would then branch out into uploading vlogs, comedy shorts, and even delved into music.

At one point Time magazine even named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

However, he recently lost his title as the world’s most subscribed YouTuber after being overtaken by MrBeast.

While PewDiePie had 111 million subscribers, MrBeast has 122 million.

With around 28.7 billion views on his channel, he still remains one of the most popular YouTubers today.
