Brit movie heart-throb Orlando Bloom has taken two stray dogs from Morocco under his wing while filming his latest blockbuster.

The Troy actor, 27, has adopted two abandoned canines while in the north African country while shooting his new movie Kingdom of Heaven.

Bloom and American actress girlfriend Kate Bosworth are so smitten with the puppies - named SIDI and ESSA - they have spent thousands of dollars flying them over to America where they both spend most of their time.
