Freya was dubbed “the loneliest dog in the U.K.” after she was passed up for adoption 18,720 times over the course of six years. She was taken in when she was just 6 months old at Freshfields Animal Rescue in Liverpool, but the Staffordshire bull terrier mix has yet to find a forever home.
Staffers at Freshfields are afraid that since Freya was diagnosed with epilepsy, her already slim chances would become nonexistent.
After seeing a video and an article compiled by the Mirror, Hollywood director Michael Bay decided to step in. He announced via Twitter that Freya would join the cast of Transformers: The Last Knight. As an avid dog lover, his idea to cast her came with the additional hope that all the attention to Freya’s story would find her an owner. And if it didn’t, then he is more than happy to have Freya move in with him!
After seeing the initial article from the Mirror, Michael Bay sent out a series of tweets. He said:
“Found this in the news last week in the UK. We gave the Loneliest Dog, a role in Transformers. Freya, has epilepsy and has been in a shelter her whole 6 year life. We are also going to find her a home. If not she will come to my house. Welcome to the cast Freya!”
Freya’s story first came to us several months ago and now we finally can see her work as a Hollywood star. Photos were released of her on-set with Sir. Anthony Hopkins, as they pair worked together on the latest Transformers film.
Below, you can see Freya in action as a famous movie dog in a video by Paramount Pictures.
