Britain's 'Loneliest Dog,' Who Scored Role in Transformers, Finds Home

Posted on

Freya found her forever.

A shelter pooch that Michael Bay gave a role to in his upcoming Transformers film, has found fame and now a place to call home.

According to the BBC, the 6-year-old pooch will reside with Ray and Jackie Collins, from Cheadle Hulme, England, who are due to sign adoption papers on Tuesday.

The pup, who has epilepsy and has lived her entire life in a shelter, was dubbed Britain’s ‘Loneliest Dog’ by a U.K. newspaper earlier this year. Director Michael Bay took notice and vowed to help the Staffordshire bull terrier.

“Found this in the news in England,” he wrote on Instagram. “So we called and gave the Loneliest Dog a role in Transformers. We are going to make her famous. Freya, has epilepsy and lived in a shelter her whole life. We are going to find her a home. If not she’s coming to my house!”

The Freshfields Animal Rescue, who has been caring for the dog, thinks Freya and her new owners are a perfect match.

“It was obvious from the beginning that Ray and Jackie had something special with Freya,” kennel manager Collette Piert told the BBC. “They immediately understood what she needed, and have worked closely with us over the past few weeks to put in place the support and guidance we provided … Finally Freya will be part of a family who can provide a stable home where she can enjoy her life to the full. We couldn’t be happier for her.”

Bay, too, is pleased for the pooch. His office told the BBC he was “delighted to hear that Freya has a loving home.”
