Along with Sir Anthony Hopkins, ‘The World’s Loneliest Dog’ becomes a movie star.
Freya, a dog who had previously lived in a shelter, once struggled to find a conversation partner. She now enjoys working alongside some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
She will soon join them both.
Staffordshire bull terrier Freya was brought to Freshfields Animal Rescue in England as a stray puppy. She waited and observed adopters coming and going for six years, but no one was interested in adopting her.
Freya was given the depressing moniker of “world’s loneliest dog” during that time after allegedly being passed over by 18,720 pet-seekers.
But all of a sudden, things changed.
After reading an article about Freya’s terrible situation earlier this year, director Michael Bay felt that the lonely dog had been ignored for far too long. Bay announced on Twitter that Freya has been cast in the upcoming installment of his “Transformers” movie series.
Since then, details have been scarce, but we now have a behind-the-scenes photo of Freya and Anthony Hopkins on the set.
In the Paramount Studios footage above, Bay is heard saying, “Freya’s just do an excellent job acting.”

Freya does have something better than celebrity.
In July, the sweet dog eventually got what she dearly required: a loving family to call her home.
“Every dog deserves a family,” rescuers wrote on her behalf online. “I really want to thank everybody who helped make that happen for me.”
