Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are probably among the most beloved couples in Hollywood.

But that might be soon to change, thanks to new reports about the actors allegedly neglecting and abandoning their pet Chihuahua.

According to TMZ, the problems started when Faris adopted the dog named Pete about four years ago.

At the time, Faris signed an agreement with rescue shelter operator Laurel Kinder, stating that she would pay a fine of $5,000 if she ever gave the dog to a different owner.

On Friday, Pete was found wandering the streets of North Hollywood and was reportedly badly emaciated.

Pete was outfitted with microchip that identified Pratt and Faris as his owners.

The couple is currently out of town, but reps say they’ve made arrangements to have the dog returned to the “nice home” that they found for him upon concluding that they could no longer care for the animal.

Faris and Pratt’s ream did not comment on why they violated their agreement, or if they intend to pay the shelter the agreed-upon $5,000.

Sadly, this isn’t the first time that Faris and Pratt have been involved in a pet-related controversy.

Back in 2011, Pratt was criticized for attempting to give his 15-year-old cat away on Twitter.

His response to online backlash was seen by many as insensitive to both animal lovers and people who are unable to have children:

“Bottom line, and not that this is any of your f–king business weirdos, but my wife and I want to start a family and we ABSOLUTELY CANNOT have an animal that shits all over the house,” Pratt wrote on social media.

“Sorry. If you are a parent you will understand. And if not, that probably explains why you have such a hard on for cats. Just sayin’.”

This was all before Chris became a mainstream movie star on the strength of his performance in Guardians of the Galaxy, and he may have changed his ways in the years since.

There were reports of Pratt losing it on a fan back in September, and while the actor does appear to have lost his temper, he still remained pretty chill.

Hopefully, he and Faris will have a good explanation for what happened with Pete whenever they get back into town.
