Zac Efron Says Goodbye To His Beloved Pooch In The Most Touching Way

Losing a pet is often compared to losing a family member: The same void is left when they are gone, and it’s hard to fill a space so big when someone or something you love is suddenly gone.

Many pet owners feel the need to commemorate their pet in some way, as a way of connecting with others who may be experiencing the same loss. Actor Zac Efron is one of the many individuals who has experienced this loss, and he broke the news to his followers by posting of a picture of him and his best friend, Puppy Efron, a Australian shepherd.

Efron adopted the pup in 2012. Puppy appears in several photos with the actor. The two have shared many memories, and we’re sure that, no matter how many dogs Efron adopts in his lifetime, he will always remember Puppy fondly.

Actor Zac Efron had some sad news to share with his followers, this week: One of his beloved pooches, Puppy Efron, passed away. The star, who is a well-known animal lover, was clearly heartbroken as any pet owner would be.

He’s also the proud companion of several other pets. Efron first introduced his followers to the pooch in 2012, seen in this picture, happy as can be in the backseat of the car. Efron wrote on social media, “Through thick and thin you’ve always been my best friend. I’ll see you at the finish line, RIP Puppy Efron.”

His photo was liked by more than 1 million Instagram users, while thousands shared their condolences to the star.

Please SHARE if this made you want to hold your pup closer!
