The news is almost too depressing to handle this week, so here’s a feel-good story to try and counter all the negativity. Woody the poodle was abandoned and left to live under a shed after his owner died and the house they’d lived in was sold. After somehow surviving for a year, he was on the brink of death and blind in one eye when he was rescued.
His fur was matted and tangled and he could only be fed through an IV. But animal rescuing group Hope for Paws gave Woody the medical attention and love he needed. While he is still blind in one eye, he is completely healthy and is now up for adoption. The group has already had numerous requests and is carefully looking into finding a great home for a dog who deserves one.
