Woody is a very loveable dog.  He is friendly, loves people – regardless of whether they are adults or children!  At the same time, he gets along with dogs and no issues with resource guarding.  

Woody is likely a young boy.  One day, the rescuer and her husband took a trip from northern Taiwan to southern Taiwan.  They encountered a black dog lying in front of the hotel.  This dog looked like he was in a great deal of pain and appeared to be injured.  Additionally, he seemed to be malnourished and very skinny.  However, he tried his best to wag his tail at everyone passing him in-and-out of the hotel.  

The rescuer went close to him and Woody immediately wagged his tail to show his friendliness. However, he didn’t have the strength to get up.  The rescuer immediately carried him to a hospital.  Woody did very well on his way to the hospital.  He wagged his tail the whole way and seemed to understand that he was saved.  

The vet did a careful exam of Woody and found him to be healthy except for malnutrition.  The hotel that they were staying in did not allow dogs, therefore, the rescuer asked a friend who lived locally to temporarily house Woody.  The next day, the rescuer and her husband picked up Woody from her friend’s place and went back to their home in northern Taiwan.  The rescuer’s friend shared that Woody did really well staying at their house.  He was friendly to everyone, including the 2 smaller dogs in their household.  He did not have any accidents in the house and did his business when they took him for walks.  He did well on leash and seemed to previously had a family.

When Woody arrived at the rescuer’s home, he got along well with the 4 older dogs in the house.  He is a balanced dog and is very smart.  Of course, he needed the time to adjust to a new environment, but he was such a good boy and blended into the pack and family life quite well.  

Initially, Woody only weighed 24 pounds due to lack of nutrition. Now that he has been fed well and increased his weight to 33 pounds, his black coat is shiny and he looks so happy.  Woody is waiting for his forever home!  If you are interested in him, please reach out to us anytime.
