The Star Trek movie star took to Instagram to post one last photo of himself with his furry friend, who had been by his side for over a decade.

In a lengthy caption, Zachary shared his heartache over the loss of Noah, who he credited with making the actor a better man.

"anyone who has ever truly known me in the last 14 years has known this true prince," he began. "noah has been by my side through up and down. thick and thin. feast and famine.

"in loving him i learned to love myself more fully. he taught me compassion and patience and generosity... and oh how he made me laugh."

Zachary continued, "he made friends wherever he went. his spirit was pure. his love was legend. i am a better person for having had him in my life. but tonight we had to let him go. surrounded by love he went to sleep. and may he forever rest in peace."

The actor didn't shed light on the cause of Noah's death, but his boyfriend Miles McMillan also bid an emotional farewell to the shaggy dog in his own Instagram post.

"We had to say goodbye to our dear sweet Noah last night," Miles shared beside a picture of himself hugging the pooch. "He was surrounded by love flowers and music. I'll always remember his big grin and how happy he always was to get a little lovin'."

Zachary isn't the only star to lose a furry friend in recent days - Salma Hayek mourned the death of her pup Blue on Instagram last weekend (15-16Apr17).
