Freya, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross from Freshfields Animal Shelter, has been given a role i
Michael Bay, the Director of ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ saw the news article last week on Freya, a six year old Staffordshire bull terrier cross who has been at Freshfields Animal Shelter all of her life.
“Found this in the news last week in the UK,” he said “We gave the Loneliest Dog, a role in Transformers.”
“Freya, has epilepsy and has been in a shelter her whole 6 year life. We are also going to find her a home. If not she will come to my house. Welcome to the cast Freya!”
This is Freya's write up on the Freshfield Animal Rescue web page, describing her loving nature:
'Freya was brought into the rescue as a young stray, but nobody came forward to claim her. She has been here many years now and is constantly over looked which breaks our hearts as we adore her! Freya has her own special room away from the kennels to make her life as comfortable as possible. Freya adores her room, she can be quite a lazy dog the older she gets and is often found in her bed, usually under a blanket! Freya is walked every day by the staff. She gets driven around as she loves the car and she goes to different walks nearby. She loves her walks and happily follows her nose!
Sadly in recent months Freya has developed epilepsy. We sincerely hope this does not put people off giving her a home, after many years here she thoroughly deserves to find a loving family! She is on medication and is monitored by our vet and has blood tests every 3 months to keep an eye on her. Please speak to the staff for more information about this condition.
Kennels are not the ideal place for young dogs to grow up as they do not get enough time and attention devoted to them. Despite growing up in the rescue, Freya isn't doing too badly considering! She was fairly boisterous in the past and she still has her moments when meeting new people. However, generally speaking she is much calmer than ever before. We feel that in a home environment she would probably be excited to begin with but given time she will calm down once she settled in as she would be getting attention all the time. Freyas burst of love when she sees someone is just pure excitement as she loves people so much! Once she has calmed down she loves getting her tummy tickled and will happily lie next to you getting fussed for as long as you will stroke her for!
She needs an adult only home or one with older teens and she needs to be the only pet. She needs a calm, patient owner that will put in the time and commitment to get to know her at the rescue and help her make the transition to home life. She needs an active home that can manage her on the lead. Freya is good on the lead most of the walk, but will pull to meet another dog, or towards an interesting sniff and she is strong! She will need someone home for the majority of the day until she is used to being left alone.
Freya has SO much potential, she just needs someone to give her that chance. She may take a few weeks to settle and calm down, but that is understandable after her poor start to life. We are sure that she will make the most wonderful friend if only someone will give her the chance she so desperately needs and deserves.'
We all hope that Freya enjoys her new role and finally gets the loving home that she deserves.
