Former Ohio State football coach Wayne Woodrow “Woody” Hayes was known for his toughness and grit. He once said, “Nothing that comes easy is worth a dime.” This Woodrow (formerly known as Brownie), a three-year-old Bully Breed mix, can relate to the wisdom in Coach Hayes’ words. On July 5th, he arrived as a stray at Yadkin Animal Shelter in North Carolina with a swollen face and bite marks, probably due to being attacked by another dog. Not only was poor Woodrow wounded from the fight, he was also heartworm positive.

On July 13th, shelter animal advocate Dee Dee Clark contacted RADAR, seeking help for Woodrow. On July 14th, we offered to provide assistance for his heartworm treatment costs, as an incentive for a rescue to pull him. On July 26th, The Rescue Express in Pennsylvania pulled Woodrow from the shelter, and he was safe! He received his heartworm treatment on August 17th and 18th.

Back when Woodrow was still being called Brownie, he was a shelter favorite, and the volunteers loved him. The folks at the rescue said this about him: “He is energetic and wonderful with other dogs, including a bossy chihuahua! Woodrow is an amazing boy who has had a rough stretch and is so deserving of a loving, forever family.” Click here to view more photos of Woodrow.

RADAR paid $250 towards Woodrow’s heartworm treatment costs.

    I was a volunteer at the Yafkin shelter and if I didn’t have 4 pits already I would have adopted him. He was my favorite. Very sweet. First thing I did when I saw him was I gave him a bath. He is an awsome dog. Hope he finds his forever home soon!

      Thank you for the comment, Sam! He really does sound like a fantastic dog — and that face! Adorable!
