This Abandoned Puppy Used To Fear Human Touch. Now He Can't Get Enough Lovin'

Sometimes a little TLC can go a long way. Just ask Finn.

The formerly homeless puppy still had baby teeth when the team at Hope for Paws discovered him, but he'd already been mistreated enough by humans to fear their touch. It took a handful of gentle pats on the head before Finn began trusting the people trying to save his life.

A video uploaded to Hope for Paws founder Eldad Hagar's YouTube account explains that after a warm bath and nap, Finn befriended Woody, the previously abandoned and "famous" poodle whose story went viral after he was found in bad shape under a shed. Woody's owner had died more than a year earlier, and the owner's family sold the house, leaving Woody to fend for himself.

But things have been looking up for the two canine friends. Woody has been nursed back into good health and happy spirits, and Finn has found a forever home with a loving family.
