Businesswoman Paris Hilton, 41, has embarked on a relentless search to find Diamond Baby, one of her chihuahuas, who disappeared on September 14 near the influencer’s home in Beverly Hills.
Since then, Hilton, an heiress to the global hotel empire that bears her surname, has not stopped hunting for her pet. She has resorted to hiring a team of detectives and seven mediums, using a specialized drone and offering a reward of $10,000. “Anyone who has ever loved a pet and lost a pet will understand this pain that I’m feeling. My heart is broken,” she wrote on her Instagram account six days after the dog’s disappearance.
Hilton explained in the same post that she suspected Diamond Baby had gone missing during a recent move, after one of the movers apparently left a door open while she was at a photoshoot. “My family and friends have been helping me search high and low throughout my entire neighborhood and have gone door to door but we still haven’t found her,” she added.
The businesswoman also feared making the disappearance public for the safety of her pet. “I’ve been scared to put out an APB to the public for her because people can be cruel and I worry about her safety but I’m desperate and the more time that passes, the farther away I feel from the chances are of me getting her back,” said Hilton, who added in one of her social media posts on Tuesday that she would not offer more money for the safety of her other dogs.
There is no doubting Hilton’s love for Diamond Baby and her other four dogs. They tend to accompany her to events, and she dresses them to match her designer clothing from brands such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Chanel. Throughout her life, the heiress has kept more than 10 dogs, all of which were bestowed peculiar names: Tinkerbell, Peter Pan, Marilyn Monroe, Harajuku Bitch, Slivington, Princess Paris Jr. and Prince Hilton, The Pom, Prince Baby Bear, Crypto Hilton and Ether Reum.
Diamond Baby entered Hilton’s life in 2016. She announced it herself through @hiltonpets, the Instagram account which she is now using to look for her missing dog. She has traditionally used the page to keep its more than 83,000 followers updated on news concerning her faithful friends. She also used it to ask fans what name she should give Diamond Baby.
Hilton has also shared pictures on the account of the small mansion that she built in the garden of her Bel-Air home for Diamond Baby and her other dogs. The elaborate construction cost $325,000 and is a miniature version of the heiress’s home. It features pink walls and wrought iron railings, leather armchairs, lamps and mini air conditioners. “I’ve been working with multiple reputable pet psychics and they have ALL told me DB is still alive and still out there,” Hilton said in one of her latest posts, adding that no questions would be asked on the dog’s safe return.
