Jessica Simpson doesn’t appreciate the false information her loved ones have received from pranksters claiming her lost Maltipoo Daisy is alive, usmagazine.com reports.

“People who have been contacting my family and friends saying that Daisy has been found,” the star, 29, Twittered on Sunday. “Untrue. People are so cruel ... please respect her memory.”

Daisy, the five-year-old dog who was a gift from ex-husband Nick Lachey, was dragged away by a coyote in her Los Angeles backyard in September. After a week of searching — which included hanging posters that offered a reward and enlisting professional pet finders FindToto.com — Daisy was never recovered.
