Los Angeles: Actor Zac Efron has paid a heartfelt tribute to his dog named Puppy, who has died.
The actor announced the news of Puppy's passing away, on Twitter and Instagram on Thursday, reports ew.com.
“Through thick and thin you've always been my best friend. I'll see you at the finish line, RIP Puppy Efron,” Efron wrote with one of his favourite photographs of him and Puppy.
In addition, the actor quoted Chance the Rapper's song “Finish line”.
“Felt hog tied ever since my dog died. He lived to 84, damn, that's a long ride. I know he just sits up there and he wait. 'I'll be racing up the stairs I'mma get to the gate singing' - Chance the Rapper,” he added.
Efron revealed the first image of Puppy in April 2012 after getting the Australian Shepherd on Christmas 2011.
Efron has another Australian Shepherd named Dreamer, and adopted a dog, Chappelle, with his former girlfriend Sami Miro during their nearly two-year relationship.
