Ellen Ballon Dante wanted to go out of town with her children, so she decided to stay at her brother’s Airbnb home in Big Bear Lake, California. The Deity Animal Rescue founder recalled that her sibling spoke to her through the CCTV about a movement on their front porch.
Elle recalled that they were about to leave the house when her brother told her to look outside. Ellen eventually saw a dog wandering alone in front of their home.
Ellen shared that her heart broke right after seeing the poor pup because the dog was shivering since it had been snowing all morning. Ellen eventually tried calling the dog to come closer to her.
Ellen’s son and his best friend were hanging out on their front porch when they saw the stray pup, so they decided to help and coax the dog to come into their house by giving him pizza bits. Ellen shared that she did not want to scare the dog away, so everyone put a long trail of pizza into their place for the pup to follow.
Ellen said that everyone did not mind sharing the delicious pizza with the pooch because they wanted him to come to them. The doggo took a while before he trusted the people around him, but he eventually did.
Ellen recalled that the dog initially looked around the first floor of the house before deciding to approach them. Ellen shared that the pup came over to them as soon as they sat down on the couch.
Ellen managed to get a hold of the dog’s owner. It turns out that the pup’s family could no longer care for him, so Ellen decided to foster the pooch they named Woody until she finds him a home.
A woman named Jenn was browsing Ellen’s page on Instagram when she came across Woody’s video. Jenn eventually adopted Woody and gave him the fur-ever home he deserves.
