A crooked-faced dog is looking for a forever home.According to S.N.A.R.R Animal Rescue Northeast, Woody was mauled by another dog when he was only 5 weeks old and was “left to heal on his own with no veterinary care.”
SNARR came to Woody’s aid after learning that he was chained outside and had been abandoned by his owners.Woody was alone for six weeks, surviving on the kindness of neighbors who fed him, until word reached SNARR.The most recent update to this story can be found at the bottom of this article.SNARR writes on Facebook, “Woody’s ‘family’ moved out and abandoned him at the home.””We were asked if we could take him into rescue, and of course we said yes!”
Despite the fact that his face is lopsided, Woody is healthy.”He just looks a little different,” his rescuers say, “which doesn’t bother us one bit.””In fact, it’s what made us fall even more in love with him.”
His rescuers were smitten by more than just his appearance.They quickly discovered that the Pit Bull had a big heart.When Woody arrived at his foster home, his foster mother was not pleased.”I was sick with a fever the first day we had Woody,” foster mom Jamie Bond told The Dodo.”He sensed something was wrong and never left my side.”He spent the entire afternoon cuddling with me on the couch.He’s now my shadow, always following me around and making sure I’m safe.Woody enjoys curling up on the bed and resting his head on my chest.”
Woody, who is now 8 months old, is also making up for lost “puppy” time by being very playful and affectionate.SNARR intends to be very picky about who adopts him because they want to find the best match for him and his new family.”Woody, while adorable, needs some love and a bit of training; he is a little jumpy, but who wouldn’t be after being chained up outside!” they write.He also requires a home free of cats because he enjoys chasing them.”
They also believe he will thrive in a home with only female dogs.”He is currently in foster care with four other female dogs and is doing fantastically,” SNARR says.”While Woody is good around children, we believe that older children (over the age of 10) are the best fit.He has zero aggression towards anything or anyone, but he is a large dog who can get excited and jump up, so older children are the better fit.”
Anyone interested in adopting Woody (and who meets the criteria) can apply on the SNARR Northeast website.
