Hilary Swank Rescues 15 y.o. Pup On Set

Hilary Swank delivers small lap dog, 15, back to its owner... after rescuing it in New York while on location for a new movie

 

Thanks Hil! Chelsea Blackwell's dachshund, Blue, disappeared Monday, and the distraught owner went in search. She learned that Hilary Swank had rescued her

 

Chelsea Blackwell's dachshund, Blue, disappeared Monday, and the distraught owner went in search.

 

But when she came upon a line of squad cars and people with cameras near the Greyhound bus station in Albany, New York, she set aside her search to investigate.

 

'I noticed there were like eight police cars and people with cameras - I thought maybe somebody got shot,' Blackwell told her local paper, the Times Union.

 

Fortunately, tragedy did not lurk. Blackwell had stumbled upon a movie crew, but ended in a one-in-a-million lucky happenstance.

 

Long story short: Her dog of 15 years was found by a movie star with a history of rescuing dogs.

 

You won't believe this, the crew told her, but a celebrity had found her pooch.

 

'I asked them if anyone saw a little brown dog, and they said, "Yes, we'll call her."'

 

An hour later, a gray car pulled up, and there was tiny 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 kissed Blue and said, "Thank you so much."'

 

Blackwell asked Swank for her autograph, but Swank did better: They took a picture.

 

The Million Dollar Baby herself!

@KingstonsMom There is still kindness ro be had in this world and shared.  I love this story that Hilary took the time to rescue the dog and see that the owner was reunited with her companion.

So wonderful!
