Since mutually closing the chapter on their relationship Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes are trying to sort out how to share custody of their fur-baby, Tarzan.

HollywoodLife reported that while Mendes is taking the pain of his breakup quite well, the “Wonder” singer has been heartbroken about losing his dog in the process of the split.

A source close to Mendes told HollywoodLife, “Shawn is trying to move on with his life and he is getting ready to drop a single and go on tour.”

They added, “Although he is in a good place in his head over the breakup with Camila, there is one aspect of it that he is not okay with, which is being separated from his dog, Tarzan!”

Last year, Shawn and Camila took a big step in their relationship and brought a puppy into the fold. On November 3, 2020, the duo took to social media to announce the arrival of their sweet Golden Retriever puppy, Tarzan.

The source explained, “Shawn and Camila got Tarzan together and Tarzan had become like a child to Shawn. Now that he and Camila are broken up, she has Tarzan and he is really upset over the separation from him. He really misses Tarzan greatly.”

As of now, Tarzan has been in Cabello’s care. The “Havana” songstress has been sharing images of the pup across Instagram. On Thanksgiving, Camila posted a video where Tarzan is sitting on her lap and is surrounded by other dogs.

The artist wrote, “I have a lot to be thankful for, but I’m especially grateful that I gotta whole squad trying to hang w me while I meditate. Happy gratitude day everybody! I’m very thankful for all of you on here who send me love, listen to my music, and support me on this creative/ life journey! Even though I haven’t met a lot of you, you guys show me love, kindness, and support and I’m sending it to all of you right back.”

In November, Mendes and Cabello announced their mutual breakup on social media. Their joint statement read, “We’ve decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever. We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends. We so appreciate your support from the beginning and moving forward.”

Shawn really feels that this would be best for the dog.”
