"Through thick and thin you've always been my best friend. I'll see you at the finish line, RIP Puppy Efron," he wrote before quoting 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.'"

"I've got a dog named Puppy. He's an Australian Shepherd," he tweeted at the time. "Here's the photo of Puppy I promised earlier. It's from last Christmas morning. Hilarious! Cheers & thanks again!"

Efron, who last starred in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, is slated for The Masterpiece with Seth Rogen and The Greatest Showman on Earth with Hugh Jackman. The actor is a well-known dog lover who gushed about his pets to Seventeen in 2008.

"My dogs are crazy. They're always getting into some kind of trouble... but then again, they're my most loyal friends," he told the magazine.
