It’s a true rags to riches story. Movie magic will soon give one lonely shelter dog the happily ever after she deserves.

“Lights, camera, action!”

Those are the words that one lucky rescue pooch in the UK will be hearing very soon.

Previously dubbed the “world’s loneliest dog,” Freya is a 6-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier that was found as a stray puppy and has spent her entire life at Freshfields Animal Rescue Centre in Liverpool. Shelter workers describe Freya as a very loving dog and simply can’t understand why she has yet to be adopted.

Freya’s plight gained attention in late-May when she appeared on Good Morning Britain and her story was shared across social media. And the even better news is, it seems a rather prominent Hollywood director heard of Freya’s sad tale and decided to do something about it.

Michael Bay, director of the uber-successful Transformers franchise, recently announced via Twitter that after seeing Freya on the news, he had offered her a role in the new Transformers movie, which is currently in production!

Not only that, he has promised to find Freya a permanent home. Bay is reportedly a huge dog lover and is proud dog-papa to Bonecrusher and Grace, a pair of bullmastiffs.

And if they aren’t successful in finding Freya a permanent home across the pond, Bay says she’ll be coming to live with him! How’s that for a happy ending?

So, three cheers for Michael Bay and Freya! We can’t wait to see her strutting her stuff up on the silver screen AND living out the rest of her days with a loving furever family.
