New York Woman Finds Lost Dachshund – On Hilary Swank’s Lap | Radio WGN 720

ALBANY, NY (AP) — Chelsea Blackwell’s dachshund, Blue, went missing on Monday, and the distraught owner went looking for it.

But when she came across a line of patrol cars and people with cameras near the Greyhound bus station, she put her search aside to investigate.

“I noticed there were eight police cars and people with cameras – I thought maybe someone had been shot,” Blackwell told his local newspaper, the Times Union.

Thankfully, the tragedy didn’t hide – Blackwell had stumbled across a film crew – but ended with one lucky chance in a million.

Long story short: Her 15-year-old dog was found – by a movie star with a history of dog rescue.

You won’t believe this, the crew told him, but a celebrity had found his pooch.

“I asked them if anyone had seen a little brown dog, and they said, ‘Yeah, we’ll call him. “”

An hour later, a gray car pulled up and there was a little Blue sitting in the lap of two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank.

“I was like, ‘No way,'” Blackwell said. “As soon as she got out of the car, I hugged Blue and said, ‘Thank you so much.'”

Blackwell asked Swank for his autograph, but Swank did better: they took a picture.

And Blackwell, wanting to make sure Swank gets proper credit, posted the photo on Facebook.

“I stopped and asked if anyone had seen a little brown dog? A man came up to my car and said, yes, this woman came to get him,” she wrote in her post.

“I said who? He replied, a celebrity,” Blackwell wrote. “He called the person who had it. And they said she’s on her way back. You’ll never guess who had it?

The Million Dollar Baby herself.

“She’s not the kind of person,” Blackwell said, “who’s going to honk her horn and tell people what she’s done.”

Swank is no stranger to dog rescue.

“All the dogs I’ve rescued and shared my life with have all had their unique way of being in the world,” Swank, who has adopted many dogs, said in a YouTube video posted by the magazine. People.

Swank has set up a foundation, Hilaroo – a portmanteau of her name and the name of a dog she adopted, Karoo – which matches abandoned dogs with children who the foundation says “have been abandoned by society”. .
