Chelsea Blackwell found her lost dog — AND she got a selfie with Oscar winner Hilary Swank.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

She looked and looked, until she came upon a crowded movie set. There she found lights, cameras and Blue, who'd been rescued by the actor Hilary Swank. Blackwell got her dog back and a selfie with an Oscar winner, who coincidentally founded an organization that unites rescued dogs with people to love them.

It's MORNING EDITION.
