Eldad Hagar, the founder of Hope for Paws, shows the heart-wrenching story of Woody, an abandoned dog.

According to Huffington Post, when Woody’s owner died, the family sold the house and left the dog behind.

For more than a year, Woody waited under a nearby shop hoping the owner would come home.

When Woody was finally found by Hagar, his spirit was shattered and he refused to eat, but Hope for Paws cleaned him up and now he just needs a new home.
