The casting news comes hours after Bay announced Freya, an epileptic six-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier that was last month dubbed Britain’s loneliest dog, will also appear in the fifth Transformers movie when it hits theatres in June, 2017.

The dog spent all its six years at an animal rescue centre in England, being turned down 18000 times for adoption and a recent article about the sad pooch in a British tabloid gave animal lover Bay the idea.
