THIS tiny chap owes a big thank you to The Star’s wonderful readers.

Just a couple of weeks ago we told you about the plight of Yorkshire terrier cross Woody, who was in a very sorry state indeed.

He was brought into the RSPCA centre in Attercliffe in a sorry state after being accidentally caught under a door.

And he needed a series of operations, costing £1,200 to get him back on his feet.

Today, thanks to Star readers, enough money has been donated to pay for Woody’s operations.

RSPCA Sheffield Animal Centre general manager Stella White said: “I can’t thank Star readers enough for their kind donations.

“As long as the operation goes well, it should only take a few months for Woody to heal.

“Then we’ll be looking for a new home for him.”

Meanwhile, the RSPCA is looking for a home for Rockstar, a seven year old cream German Shepherd Akita cross.

RSPCA Animal Care manager Tony Benham said: “This handsome dog has been on the look out for a new home for some months now.

“He’s a big, soft lad who loves to play and his plush fur to be brushed.

“He’s good on the lead and loves sniffing around and having a gentle ponder about.”

Rockstar knows some commands but needs to learn a few more and would benefit from training classes.

He would prefer a home with children over 12 without other animals.
