Woody, a crooked-faced dog, is looking for a forever home. He was attacked by another dog at the age of 5 weeks and “left to recuperate on his own with no veterinary treatment,” according to S.N.A.R.R Animal Rescue Northeast.
SNARR came to rescue Woody after learning that he was tied outside and had been abandoned by his owners. Woody was alone for six weeks, living on the charity of neighbors who fed him, until word reached SNARR.
“Woody’s ‘family’ moved out and abandoned him at the home,” SNARR writes on Facebook. “We were asked to take him into rescue and of course said YES!”
“The first day we had Woody I was sick with a fever,” foster mom Jamie Bond said “He knew something wasn’t right and never left my side. He snuggled with me on the couch all afternoon. Now he’s my shadow, always following wherever I go, making sure I’m safe and sound. Woody loves to curl up on the bed and put his head on my chest.”
Now 8 months old, Woody is also making up for his missed “puppy” time and is very playful and affectionate. SNARR plans on being very selective with whomever adopts him because they want to find the best fit for him and his new family.
Despite the fact that his face is uneven, Woody is very healthy. “He just looks a little different which doesn’t bother us one bit,” his rescuers say. “In fact, it’s what made us fall in love with him even more.”
They write, “Woody, while adorable, needs some love and a bit of training, he is a bit jumpy, but who wouldn’t be after being chained up outside! He also needs a home without cats, he likes to chase them.”
Anyone interested in adopting Woody (and who fits the criteria) can fill out an application at SNARR Northeast’s website.
Woody’s crooked face gives him a unique appearance, but it doesn’t stop him from being a happy and friendly dog. He loves playing with toys and cuddling with humans. Despite his rough start in life, Woody has a warm heart and is eager to find a loving family who will give him the care and attention he deserves.
S.N.A.R.R Animal Rescue Northeast has been taking care of Woody, and they say he’s been doing well with his physical therapy to help him walk and run more comfortably. They are hoping to find a special family who will appreciate Woody’s charm and provide him with a forever home.
