LIVERPOOL, England — Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Freya, has finally found a home to call her own after being rejected roughly 18, 700 times. The dog once dubbed, “Britain’s Loneliest,” saw hundreds of her shelter friends get adopted over the years but just couldn’t catch a break herself. That is, until a stroke of luck last month threw her into the spotlight when director Michael Bay took notice of the six-year-old. Bay offered Freya a role in the next Transformers movie and the rest is history.
Not only did Freya’s movie role give her a chance at stardom but it also provided her with the opportunity to attract the right home for her. Ray and Jackie Collins, came across an article about Freya’s plight and decided that they would be happy to have the girl join them and their two dogs in their home. The couple contacted the Freshfield’s Animal Rescue, where Freya has spent most of her life, and they set up a plan to see the girl get adopted.
Upon receiving the great news, rescue staff reveal, “We, at Freshfields, have never given up hope that Freya would find a loving home. We never give up hope.” Although they were worried it might be difficult, as the dog had also recently developed epilepsy, they knew she would still be a great addition to the right family. Fortunately, the Collins are very experienced dog owners who are willing to overcome any challenges with Freya, as long as she finally got the forever home she’s always deserved. Congratulations are in order, as Freya is officially joining her new family today!
