Once upon a time a dog named Freya couldn’t catch a break. She sat all alone in a shelter, with passersby overlooking her for younger, “less intimidating” dogs. Today, things are much more different for Freya. For one, she finally left the confines of a lonely shelter and has found a forever home; and two, she hands with movie stars and is about to become one herself.
Freya, a Staffordshire bull terrier, was only 6 months old when she was surrendered to the Freshfields Animal Rescue in England. There she sat for 6 years as shelter patrons routinely passed her up, in favor for other dogs. In fact, the shelter believes that she may have been passed up a remarkable 18,000 times by pet-seekers earning her the dubious nickname as the ‘world’s loneliest dog.’
Thankfully, all of that changed.
Earlier this year, after reading a story about Freya on news site The Daily Mail, Hollywood-based film producer Michael Bay decided to step in and help. He contacted Freshfields Animal Rescue and told them that he would like to star Freya in his latest installment of the Transformers franchise.
The shelter of course obliged, and we found this sneak peak ok Freya in action with her co-star actor Anthony Hopkins, in the teaser below:
After Bay took to his Twitter account to announce that he was staring Freya in his new film, adoption applications came pouring in. This past July, Freya was adopted and is no longer the loneliest dog in the world.
A rescuer took to Facebook to write about Freya saying,
“There’s a home out there for every dog and I’m living proof. I just want to say thank you to everyone who made this happen for me.”
