It’s a doggone good story with a Hollywood ending.
A woman who lives in Albany, New York, US, says she was reunited with her pet dog after actress Hilary Swank came across the lost canine.
Chelsea Blackwell’s dachshund, Blue, went missing Monday (June 13) and was gone for about an hour, she told the Times Union, an American newspaper serving Albany region.
Blackwell couldn’t believe it when she learned Swank had recovered him.
Blackwell had searched around town before ending up near a Greyhound bus station, where she observed police cars and camera crews. A man told Blackwell that a celebrity found the dog – and she soon learned it was Swank.
“I was like, ‘No way,’” Blackwell told the Albany newspaper. “As soon as she got out of the car, I kissed Blue and said, ‘Thank you so much.’ "
Blackwell took a photo with Swank, a two-time Oscar winner for Boys Don’t Cry and Million Dollar Baby.
Swank, 47, is reportedly in Albany to shoot an undisclosed movie. – New York Daily News/Tribune News Service
