The Baywatch star let fans know on August 25th that he dog, Puppy had passed away.

"Through thick and thin you've always been my best friend. I'll see you at the finish line, RIP Puppy Efron," he wrote on Instagram next to a darling photo of Puppy licking his owner.

Efron also shared lyrics from Chance The Rapper's song, "Finish Line/Drown:"

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 I'mma get to the gate singing

Efron announcement coincides with National Dog Day, which makes the Australian shepherd's death even more poignant.

According to Us Weekly, Efron got Puppy on Christmas Day 2011, but only told fans about him in April 2012.

If it wasn't possible to love Efron more, allow us to tell you about the time he ran out of his house to rescue a dog.

"I rescued a dog,” Efron told Buzzfeed once.

“He was a puppy and he got away. I just ran out in the yard to go save him, like in the street, in my underwear — I just woke up — and snagged him and was like, 'No, don't run away.'

"And I looked up and my neighbor and his whole family were like, 'Morning!' I was like, 'Hey! This is awkward. You have a lot of kids.'"

A few weeks ago, John Stamos also posted a beautiful tribute to his late dog.

"She was always there, especially in the dark times," Stamos wrote of his gorgeous pup, Linka.

"Never judging. By my side. Only loyal."

If you need me, I'll be bawling my eyes out.

Zac Efron Quotes

Everything's been stepped up a few notches, all the dances, and I think the songs are pretty catchy this time around. And it's our senior year, so we've got graduation and prom to look forward to. All fun things to have in a movie.

Zac Efron [on High School Musical 3]

You never know with teenage girls. It's funny. But they're always, most of the time they're pretty respectful, and I love 'em. I'm very grateful.
