Dog Goes From Digging Through Trash to Being Featured in a Hollywood Movie
Shelby the dog is the shining star of her own “rags to riches” story. The 2-year-old pup went from hunting for food through piles of trash to winning the hearts of moviegoers around the world. Shelby was first spotted sifting through garbage at a landfill near Nashville, Tennessee two years ago. Meanwhile, in Hollywood, filmmakers were preparing to start work on a new movie called A Dog’s Way Home, based on a novel under the same title. They stumbled upon the photogenic picture of Shelby from Cheatham County Animal Control and the rest is history.
