FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — From a Georgia shelter to the big screen, a rescue pup from Fulton County Animal Services has become a rising star. 

Fulton County Animal Services says Coco came to the shelter in the beginning of 2021. Now, she's a breakout star in the hit new installment in the "Predator" series, "Prey."

Coco is making waves on the internet and in the movie world. Fans are referring to her as "the Meryl Streep of dogs" on Twitter.

Coco was adopted for the project and had no film training prior, FCAS said in a Facebook post. 

She was originally meant to have a small role, but her popularity among test audiences encouraged the director to give her a bigger role. 

"We are so delighted that Coco found the life she has, and is now shining a light on the potential of shelter dogs and what they are capable of when given a chance," FCSO wrote in a Facebook post.
