Entrenched in a system for over six years could get a canine down in the dumps. Not over in the U.K. as Freya merrily greeted visitors from the confines of her cage since six months old. People came, stopped, stared, and considered. In the end, it was the same heartbreaking rejection time and time again. Over 18,000 times was this pouch passed over for adoption. Finally, the strong spirit of this animal combined with the kindness of one individual not only has her finding a home but putting her in a major motion picture!
A Straffordshire bull terrier mix made her way to the Freshfields Animal Rescue many years ago. As with most dogs, the older the animal results in the decreased likelihood it would be chosen for adoption. People tend to look for younger animals under the impression that they are more easily trained. Making events more difficult was a diagnosis that Freya suffers from epilepsy. This would have made her getting adopted especially difficult if not for a story ran about her in a local newspaper.
Hollywood director Michael Bay came across the story and decided to take action. Not only would the canine get a home but a role in the next installment of the Transformers movie franchise. Twitter was set ablaze as social media reveled in this announcement. Not only would Freya be liberated from her cage and confines at the shelter but her days as an unadopted pet would soon be coming to an end. The director indicated that if no one step to the plate to adopt her after this then she would be a permanent part of their household. Great news for a dog that has had too many disappointments in her life.
Those that want to adopt Freya have to take into consideration her medical issues as well. Her epilepsy requires a patient hand with courage to help her through the occasional seizure. It is highly recommended that her first home would be one with only adults in it and no other pets. Freya has been in the shelter system for so long it is going to require a transition environment with as few distractions or rivals as possible. She has her own “Doggie Diary” on Facebook. This is where one can not only track her progress through her movie but made inquiries on adding her to your home. Good fortune to you Freya as better days for you are here right now.
