"Last week I lost my best friend," Levy wrote along with a picture of him holding his dog. "Heartbroken, but grateful for every minute of the last ten years that I got to spend with him. I love you my sweet boy."
"Finding him was the greatest thing that ever happened to me," he continued. "If you are looking for a pet, first make sure you've thought it through and that you have the means to care for them properly, THEN please please please consider adopting. There are so many animals just waiting for a better life."
Levy was known for often posting pictures of Redmond on his Instagram, sharing little peeks into their life together. At different times, Levy called Redmond "the only one that really matters," and his "best pal."
