Zac Efron’s Dog Has Died

Zac Efron shared the heartbreaking news of his dog’s death with his fans and social media followers on Thursday (Aug. 26, 2016).

“Through thick and thin you’ve always been my best friend. I’ll see you at the finish line, RIP Puppy Efron,” wrote Efron in the caption of his Instagram post below. He then added the following Chance the Rapper lyrics from “Finish Line” to the end of his dedication:

“Felt hog tied ever since my dog died / He lived to 84, damn, that’s a long ride / I know he up there he just sit and he wait / I’ll be racing up the stairs Imma get to the gate singing.”

Efron announced Puppy Efron’s entrance into his family in April 2012. Puppy Efron is also survived by Chapelle, Efron’s dog with his ex-girlfriend Sami Miro, and another Australian Shepherd named Dreamer.
