Deep brown eyes, noble demeanor, finest dog ever. A sad day. Goodbye Big Boy."

Fans have been quick to rush to comfort Hanks, according to the Daily Mail, with one user writing: 'One of the hardest things in life is losing a beloved pet. I am sorry for the loss of Monty, he was a great dog. One day you will be re-united with him, but until then he'll be always be with you in your heart and in your thoughts. God Bless, Mr. Hanks.'

Other fans are encouraging Hanks to get a new dog as soon as possible to help him get over his loss.

Hanks has spoken about Monty in the past and in 2009 he considered moving to a new home in California because his home became infested with a terrible stink after a skunk attacked Monty and his other German Shepherd.
