FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — A pup in Georgia has gone from the animal shelter to the silver screen.

Coco plays the lead character's four-legged companion on Hulu's "Prey."

On its Facebook page, Fulton County Animal Services says she came into their care in early 2021.

The shelter says Coco had no film training and was adopted specifically for the movie.

"She was originally meant to have a small role however her popularity among test audiences encouraged director Dan Trachtenberg to include more of Coco in the film," the group said.

They say Coco's fame shines a light on what shelter dogs are capable of when given a chance.
