Washington D.C. [USA], Oct. 25 (ANI): Orlando Bloom has given us another reason to love him even more. The British actor, who is currently shooting in China, rescued an abandoned dog on the streets of Shanghai.

The 39-year-old star who spotted the stray dog with a bloody wound on her back, ensured to bring her back to safety, reports People magazine.

Bloom took to social media to document how he went about the work, giving the canine a new start by posting each stage of the rescue onto his Instagram story.

The series of posts showed the wounded dog, who was then taken to the vet for attention. The 'Kingdom of Heaven' star even helped the doctor shave the dog and kept her calm by constantly calling her 'good girl'. After the cleanup, the dog got some much needed rest and relaxation.

Presumably, the pup will be joining the actor's furry best friend, 13-year-old Sidi.

On the work front, the 'Lord of the Rings' star will next be seen in 'Smart Chase: Fire & Earth' directed by Charles Martin. (ANI)
