The outing came after the beautiful actress took to Instagram to celebrate National Dog Day with a clip of Darla.
‘Happy #nationaldogday I can’t imagine my life without Darla,’ she said, adding the hashtag, #adoptdontshop.
The Spring Breakers star, who visited Turks and Caicos earlier this summer, opened up to Collider in August of 2018 about the unique way Darla came to be her pet, during a time she was in her nine-year relationship with Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood star Austin Butler.
‘What happened is that my boyfriend’s mom lived in an apartment building and, in the thick of summer, day in and day out, she would see, on her neighbor’s balcony, a little dog,’ Hudgens told the outlet.

The Powerless star described the unsatisfactory conditions the dog was living in at the time: ‘There was no food or water for her, and she was out there for hours on end.’
Hudgens said Butler’s mother ‘knocked on their door and was like, “If you guys can’t take care of the dog, let me take care of it,” and they gave her the dog.’
‘So, when she passed away, me and Austin took Darla in, and she’s just been our little angel.’

Hudgens said that she saw changes in the personality of the pooch once it was being cared for.
‘I’ve gotten to see her come out of her shell,’ she said. ‘When we first met her, she wouldn’t even let us touch her, and now she’s just the ultimate snuggle bug.’
Hudgens said that she feels ‘having a dog really brings a great sense of responsibility because they’re honestly like children, except that you can leave them on their own for a few hours and they’ll be okay.
‘I feel like she sees the best in me, which helps me see the best in myself, as well.’
