Fans of the hit TV Sitcom Modern Family will be sad to hear that the much loved family dog Stella has passed away age 10.

The French Bulldog (real name Beatrice) first appeared on the show in season 4 after another French Bulldog left the role.

Reports suggest that Beatrice passed away just days after the TV show finished filming the final ever episode.

Ed O'Neill's character Jay Pritchett owned Stella on the show, Stella's real life owners had nothing but praise for the star.

"Ed O'Neill is in love with her! It's very easy working with him because he brings Beatrice treats like popcorn and always looks out for her." they said.

"We'll be doing scenes in the backyard by the pool and in between takes he'll say, 'Would you please get Beatrice an umbrella, she's in the sun!'"

Fellow star Jesse Tyler Ferguson paid tribute to the pup on Twitter. "Rest In Peace sweet Beatrice. We love you so much." he wrote.
