Dog found living under shed for a year after owner dies
Published 16/07/2014 | 11:00
An American animal welfare charity nursed a dog to full health after it spent a year living under a shed following its owner's death.
Woody was surviving on food and water left our by neighbours and was in severe need of care.
Fortunately for the dog, he was found and rescued by American animal charity 'Hope for Paws'. The charity workers used a stick and collar to get Woody to safety.
He was then taken back to the charity's base, where he was cleaned up and given a trim.
Hope for Paws is a non-profit organisation which helps animals living on the streets. Staff members are now looking for potential owners to give Woody a new home.
