Abandoned Calif.poodle rescued from living under porch a year after owner died

For a year, a lonely poodle lived under the porch of a home in Los Angeles where he waited for his owner to return, but that was never to be. Woody's owner died last year; the family sold the home, and moved everything out of the house; that is except for the tiny poodle who nestled in the dirt waiting for his owner to return home.

Woody lived under a porch for a year after his owner died and the rest of the family moved away and left Woody on his own.

All the neighbors liked the little dog, and would bring him food and water hoping that someone would rescue him, but no one ever came for Woody either. Neighbors became concerned when the dog stopped eating; a "pawsome" rescue happened however when Eldad arrived to change Woody's life for the better.

The heartwarming video shows how ready little Woody was to be rescued.

It took a shave, a bath, good food and some basic loving to bring Woody around. He is now being fostered, but is ready to be adopted into his "furever" home. Watch Eldad as he gently coaxes the terrified little pooch out from beneath the abandoned porch. Watch how Woody reacts to the gentle touch of his rescuers.
