Woody - posted 09/08/2013

From Amy of Eldorado Springs, CO

When I saw Woody's picture on, there he was, smiling in amongst the grass and flowers. Not only did the caption say Woody, but also ****LOYAL COMPANION**** and that just struck a chord. I told my husband that we might have just found our dog! The good folks at Freedom Street Rescue also posted his story. The workers at [an open-admission shelter] in Louisiana saw that he was just too good a dog and did everything they could to find him a way out. He was transported to Freedom Street Rescue in Texas, a wonderful group that has foster homes in Colorado, too. From there we adopted him into our home, a big 8 month old sweet hound mix. He has a friendly approach to all new people and dogs he meets, and he has won our hearts over with his boundless love. He loves going to the creek and taking (brief, for now) hikes, and "the family walk" after dinner with all three of us. We couldn't be happier! Thank you to everyone along Woody's journey to us, at home at last!
