Woody ~ aka Billy Wizz

A small, older crossbreed was brought in to District Dogs Rescue, Warrington following a road traffic accident in May 2005. He had his eye removed and was nicknamed Billy Wizz. Now known as Woody and settled in his forever home with new mum Barb, he may not “wizz” around, but he’s certainly fallen on all four paws!
