What a sweetie!
Turns out Hayden Panettiere has a soft spot for all animals, but one dog holds a special place in her life.
At Neutrogena's 2nd Annual Wave for Change event the actress told the story of how she rescued her pup.
"My baby, my angel Kayla, was my first dog, and I rescued her off the street. I gave [the woman] a couple hundred bucks. It seemed like she was really trying to get help. It was a gift in both ways. I got the dog, and I helped [the woman] buy a bus ticket, and I gave her money for food. She actually left a message on my friend's phone and said, 'Please take good care of my dog, I just want you to know that I bought a bus ticket and I'm going home.'"
Panettiere is convinced she found an old soul and a kindred spirit in Kayla.
"There is something about street dogs, about rescues; they have this knowing sense about them. The first time I told her to sit, she sat. She is just the most loving, docile puppy. She really is a wise little girl."
A sweet puppy is perfect for the kind actress!
