Actress Salma Hayek is in mourning for her beloved dog after he was found shot dead on her Washington ranch.

The self-professed animal lover took to Instagram on Friday to tell the world about 9-year-old Mozart, who she "personally delivered out of his mother's womb."

"I haven't posted for a week as I been mourning the death of my dog," the social media savvy actress wrote. "He was found dead in my ranch last Friday with a shot close to his heart."

Hayek said Mozart never once strayed away from his territory on the ranch and never attacked or bit anyone.

 

I haven't posted for a week as I been mourning the death of my dog, Mozart who I personally delivered out of his mother's womb. He was found dead in my ranch last Friday with a shot close to his heart. I am hoping that the Washington State authorities do justice to this wonderful dog whom in 9 years never bit or attacked anyone. He loved his territory and never strayed away...he was the most loving and loyal companion. He didn't deserve a slow and painful death. #doglover #animalrights #dog #dogoftheday #rip #delivery #washingtonstateauthorities Hace una semana que no pongo nada ya que he estado de duelo por la muerte de mi perro Mozart. De quién fui la partera, lo encontramos el viernes pasado con un tiro cerca del corazón. Espero que las autoridades del estado de Washington le hagan justicia a este extraordinario perro que durante 9 años nunca mordió o atacó a nadie, adoraba su territorio y nunca se escapó. Era el compañero más leal y no se merecía una muerte lenta y dolorosa. #muerte #perro #justiciaporlosanimales

Just a handful of days earlier, Hayek posted a shot of herself on a movie set as she cuddled another dog that looked a lot like her beloved Mozart.

"I love dogs so much that I can't resist cuddling with them - even when they've helped arrest me in the movie we're shooting!" she joked.

In 2013, Hayek told Ellen DeGeneres that she has five horses, four alpacas, a cat, eight dogs, five parrots and two fish.
