Pet Brothers From Another Mother

Professional animal photo agency Warren Photographic know a thing or two about taking pictures of pets. We can only imagine the cuteness (and mayhem!) that they’ve seen in their studio. But these shots of different animals with matching fur has to be one of the sweetest yet...

Britain’s Loneliest Dog No More

As a six-month old stray, Freya, a Staffordshire bull terrier cross, was taken in at Freshfields Animal Rescue in Liverpool. Despite her sweet nature and happy demeanor, over 18,000 potential owners passed her by and she spent six years in kennels.

But when The Mirror website wrote a story about Freya’s struggle, calling her ‘Britain’s loneliest dog,’ her plight captured the hearts of the nation - and beyond! After reading the touching tale, American filmmaker Michael Bay took pity on Freya and decided to put her in his new movie. 

Fast forward to now and Freya is starring in the latest Transformers flick with none other than Sir Antony Hopkins! And not only that, but Freya has found a forever family, a couple from Manchester who fell in love with Freya and agreed to give her a home.

Now that’s a happy ending!
