This Unwanted Shelter Pup Just Landed A Role In A Blockbuster Movie.

Not too long ago there was a story about "Freya, the world's loneliest shelter dog" that hoped to be adopted and taken into a new loving home. When that didn't happen after 6 long years, director Michael Bay, (yes THAT Michael Bay!) read about the story and took it upon himself to help the furry pup out by giving her a role on the new "Transformers: The Last Knight" movie. But that's not the end of the story.

Meet Freya

With a face so sweet, it's hard to believe no one snatched Freya and took her to a new home. But this poor, loving pup was stuck in the Freshfields Animal Rescue Centre for 6 years. But her lucky strike was right around the corner.

The Endless Search

They tried every trick in the book to get people to find it in their heart to adopt Freya, who suffered from epilepsy. Despite hearing of hundreds of heartwarming stories where people adopt blind dogs, and cats with broken hips, no one came to Freya's rescue. Until one day, director Michael Bay run across her story.

Making Waves

Not only was Michael Bay touched by her sad story, he also managed to get her a role on his new Transformers movie.
