Fans haven’t seen the dog much since the third season of 1000-lb Sisters, except for what Amy shared on social media. Amy elaborated on the health issues Little Bit experienced before she died in the comments of her post. 

“We took her to the vet five days ago for what we thought was allergies,” she wrote. “He did [an] x-ray and blood work [which revealed] she had bad lung cancer. We [kept] her on meds [and kept] her comfortable.”

The same day, Amy shared a video to her YouTube channel. The post contained photos of Little Bit set to instrumental music.

Another comment on Amy’s YouTube video reads: “I have always thought that Little Bit is one of the cutest dogs I’ve ever seen. I saw a clip earlier today of you and Little Bit was in it and I was again thinking how adorable she is. Now she’s in Heaven, happier than ever. We love you Little Bit.” 

“Oh no, not sweet Little Bit!” wrote another fan on Instagram. “She definitely lived a long loving life that you gave to her and now she’ll be your guardian angel for always! Sorry for your loss.” 

Many fans can’t believe how old Amy’s dog was. “Little Bit was 22-years-old … that is incredible in dog years!” said another Instagram user. “He was [another] star of the show with you and Tammy.” 

Amy’s dog appeared several times throughout three seasons of 1000-lb Sisters. Little Bit was beloved by Amy, her sister Tammy Slaton, her husband Michael Halterman, and her first-born son, Gage Halterman.
