Zac Efron has had a busy few weeks recently, including being adored from afar (and near) by members of the Final Five Olympic gymnastics team. But his return home from Brazil has had a sad spin to it: His beloved dog Puppy has passed.
As he wrote in an Instagram post that went up Thursday night:
The pair didn't have a lot of years together; Efron received the dog in late 2011 and posted news and a first photo about the Australian Shepherd later the next year:
More Cutest thing ever videos
Bow wowzer! These dogs dressed up as KLG, Hoda for Halloween
This dog’s ‘trust fall’ trick is too cute to be true
Watch this adorable little cowgirl try to mount her horse, Bo
Watch this baby koala ride mama piggyback down suburban street
Clearly, the two were close, even if their shared time wasn't long. Rest in peace, Zac Efron's dog. You'll always and forever be a 'puppy.'
